Commonwealth Home Inspections
Servicing Louisville KY and surrounding areas with the highest quality home inspection available for over 16 years with a perfect BBB record! We work for YOU , not Real Estate Agents.. We do not solicit agents, period!! And never will! And many will try to steer you away from us preventing a thorough evaluation of the home!
We Are Impartial and Work For You.. We were the ONLY inspection company with an iron clad guarantee before the State of Ky. required licensing, NO other company gave a “If we miss it, we’ll repair it guarantee” as we did, now the State protects you in the Home Inspector Licensing Law which went into effect June of 2006. We were certified by the American Society of Home Inspectors in 1996 long before any state required licensing but have since moved our membership to KREIA, (The Kentucky Real Estate Inspectors Association) as they are a much better organization in our opinion and have outstanding continuing education classes twice every year we attend. We have never worked for Real Estate Agents nor do we solicit them. “We work for you, not Real Estate Agents!”
What To Expect… The most thorough inspection available! Our over 30 years construction experience and over 16 years of inspecting over 5000 homes gives us the knowledge to know what to look for and what we see. We use a computerized reporting system, (available for view at the sample report link above), and include digital photos of ALL defects AND maintenance needs we find at your home. Most inspections take approximately 3-4 hours but run longer when we find more and then we do the report at the office taking another 2 hours on average.. So we are spending on average 5-6 hours on every home inspection! Double what most spend! we do not rush any inspection, if it takes 4,5 or 6 hours we take our time and ensure thoroughness. Walk with your inspector and ask questions, you will also receive maintenance information unique to your home. Unlike many inspection companies we actually get on the roof and go into attics and crawlspaces, these are the areas we typically find the most concerns including mold and structural issues.
Our inspections are usually as much as twice as thorough as other inspectors, we save you more because we find more!! Pay a little more for an inspection now and you won’t have to pay after you move in or when you sell. If any home inspector spends less than 3 hours inspecting your home and over an hour more preparing the report you are likely NOT getting a thorough inspection! That’s 5 hours total for an average size home..

I’m thrilled I ran across Kenny in the BBB reviews page, he had nothing but stellar reviews of his inspection services. Kenny warned me upon scheduling the inspection that many local Real Estate Agents get upset when they hear he was hired as the Home Inspector, I laughed thinking surely not!? Sure enough as soon as I told my agent I had scheduled an inspection they asked who it was (as if it should even matter to them, its my choice) when I told my agent (who I assumed was looking out for my best interest) it was Kenny with Commonwealth they immediately said “why did you choose him”? And “that might be a problem”. I asked what they were talking about and they said “he was a deal killer” and I shouldn’t use him! They said he would just condemn the property so he could get more business from me. !!?? I was confused and honestly a little taken back. I called Kenny back and told him my agents response and then he laughed and said “I told you!”. He then promised me that any home he had “condemned” was worthy of such and I could show his report to any inspector anywhere and get a second opinion if that were the case with my home. I’m incredibly grateful to Kenny and his thoroughness because he literally saved me $16000 off the original price because of all the issues he found. He explained them all in detail then said if they’ll fix them with a professional it’s no big deal as long as I get the guarantee from the people doing the work. I did and now I’m the proud owner of a great home here in Louisville and very proud! Thanks Kenny!

I used Commonwealth Home Inspections on 3 houses, not knowing what I was looking at I kept making offers on bad homes. When you buy in the below $100k range it can be difficult. Kenny showed me things at the first home I should have remembered at the second home but did not pay enough attention even though he tried hard to drill it into my thick skull. He stopped the first two inspections after I showed so much remorse and discounted the fee substantially, I really trust Kenny and he shows a great concern for the buyer. The third home Kenny said was “a buy it or I will” home!!! I am ecstatic! Kenny helped me find a home that was 5 times the quality and things I originally looked at, Thank you Kenny! I will, and have already, given your name to several people and will continue to do so, I cannot thank you enough.
Kenny is very knowledgeable and his advertisement says it all I work for you not your realtor that is why I picked him we are negotiating right now. I
Kenny is very knowledgeable and his advertisement says it all I work for you not your realtor that is why I picked him we are negotiating right now. If this house doesn\’t work out I\’ll use Kenny again.
Kenny did an awesome job! Being first time home buyers he really took the extra time to explain things. I’m so glad we used him. He found problems our
Kenny did an awesome job! Being first time home buyers he really took the extra time to explain things. I’m so glad we used him. He found problems our realtor didn’t mention and saved us literally tens of thousands of dollars in repairs. Don’t ever use your realtors home inspector! They just want to ram the deal through getting them their commission and you end up dealing with all the problems they didn’t find. His inspection cost is spot on and his knowledge sets the bar, Common wealth home inspections will definitely get my business again. THANKS KENNY!!!
