WHY is Solar Appraisal important

7 out of 10 homeowners lose thousands during the sale of their homes, due to an inability of adequately pricing their homes!

  • Owning your home solar system provides monthly energy savings for 25+ years, automatically increasing your home’s value when you sell!
  • Whether you’ve purchased your solar system with cash or are paying off a loan over time, a home solar installation is a tangible asset that will provide significant value to your home.
  • However, home solar installations leased or purchased through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) do not give value to your home. Instead, they make the selling process more difficult because a 3rd party owns them, and the solar system must be transferred to the new homeowner with that agreement intact.
  • To receive the most value from your solar panels when selling, get a professional home solar appraisal from a reputable solar contractor like Sandbox Solar.
  • Don’t miss out on the price you deserve! — Contact Us

I researched companies both local and national and chose Sandbox based on its reviews and proximity to my home. They are experts in solar installation and in local building inspection requirements. This made the inspection process a breeze! This company was definitely the right one for me! I highly recommend Sandbox Solar and will tell everyone I know who to call!

Sandbox Solar did a fantastic job installing a customized 27 kWh system for our home in the Boulder - Longmont Area. Having purchased solar for a previous residence, we knew exactly what we wanted and were looking for a company with the expertise to develop an especially large, hyper-optimized array for a reasonable price. We contacted several companies, but Sandbox Solar’s bid was the best. Now our array is fully engaged, and I must say, we are impressed with every aspect of our system from the design and engineering, to the construction (thank you Charles!), electrical work, and of course the performance of our batteries and panels. Service at Sandbox is so friendly, responsive and professional that we’re sad our project is done. Great job, Sandbox!

I can't say enough about Sandbox Solar. From their initial proposal to the finished installation they were informative and helpful without being pushy. I love that they are a Colorado based company and everyone that I encountered at Sandbox was enthusiastic about the installation. I asked to have little to no exposed conduit as I've seen on other homes, and they worked with me and went beyond my expectations. Browsing their website, you can tell they are excited about solar, and this was my experience working with them.

After reviewing 5+ solar project offers for residential roof solar in Fort Collins, we went with Sandbox. It's a small operation, in a good way (no "someone will contact you" type handoffs typical of the larger ones). The reasons why we chose Sandbox in the end was a) clear and realistic presentation of options (no exorbitant claims, upsells or "surprises" along the way) b) hardware/offer on par with larger operations and c) competitive prices. What definitely was unique to Sandbox Solar was the familiarity with city and utility stakeholders (at least for our Fort Collins project) - I found it really impressive that (after authorization) they could simply pull the data from the various databases instead of the "send last 12 utility bills" type of excel exercise asked by virtually everyone else. They were also the most knowledgeable about the available local finance options, without trying to upsell their own. Sandbox also scored high in all the "small things" - from being mindful about loud work as we had a week-old baby in the house, through treating the property respectably, to painting things to reduce the visual intrusiveness of the extra wiring. Ultimately, they managed to build the system to spec several weeks faster than the initial timeline estimate - kudos to the whole team!

We chose Sandbox Solar for our residential solar panels and are so happy we did! Just absolutely excellent from the first contact, the quote process, educating us on all the details and our many questions, and then throughout the install and inspection steps. Highly recommend them to everyone!
