Radiant Home Inspections Services

Thorough, sophisticated

home inspection services.

Radiant Home Inspections offers sophisticated home inspection services utilizing thermal imaging across Charleston South Carolina and the surrounding areas.

Thermal Imaging

Infrared cameras are an invaluable inspection tool, as they can highlight unseen defects such as water intrusion, plumbing leaks, insulation voids, electrical hot spots, HVAC issues and air leaks. Home inspections are a visual evaluation, right? Well thermal imagers allow us to quite literally see in another light spectrum, beyond the visible spectrum--the infrared spectrum! Infrared images illustrate how objects and surfaces absorb, emit and reflect radiation at different rates. With our trained eyes and knowledge of building science we can interpret thermograms to pinpoint and explain defects in a home. If you're not using thermal imaging, you're not getting the full picture.

Same Day Reporting

We understand that time is of the essence. During your home buying process you and your agent shouldn't be held up waiting days for an inspection report. We guarantee same day report delivery for every home inspection. Our narrative reports use just the right balance of plain english with industry jargon to outline defects, implications and recommendations in a way that new homeowners can understand. We also take the time to explain and identify the major systems of your home, even if they are free of deficiencies. Allow us to introduce you to your new home.

RecallChek Integration

Every RHI customer will receive a brief supplemental report from RecallChek. RecallChek is a third party watchdog company that notifies homeowners if any of their installed appliances have been recalled for any reason. RecallChek will alert customers in the event of a current or future recall and help facilitate repair or replacement, paid for by the manufacturer. We include HVAC equipment, water heaters and kitchen appliances at the time of the home inspection but there are dozens of other products customers can add for future protection.

Drone Roof Inspections

The best way to get a good feel for a roof is to walk the roof, touch it with your hands and inspect it closely. But the fact of the matter is some roofs are just dangerous. We take our jobs seriously and work hard for our clients, but we will not risk our lives over a home inspection. When roofs are too tall or too steep to safely walk, we use drones to photograph the roof from close proximity. (Many inspectors just look from the ground.) Drone roof inspections allow us to virtually walk the roof and visually inspect every corner. The drones also allow us to capture breathtaking images of your neighborhood worthy of professional listing photos.

Home Inspections

We evaluate every aspect of the interior and exterior of homes including structural, electrical, plumbing, heating and cooling, ventilation, insulation and roofing. There is much to consider during an inspection, and the safety of your family is top of mind as we work. We conduct home inspections for buyers under contract, pre-listing inspections for homeowners before selling, 11 month inspections for new home owners before their warranty period ends, new construction inspections, pre-drywall inspections during the building process, and infrared inspections in existing homes for exploratory reasons. We'd be honored to go to work for you.
