Commonwealth Home Inspections
The highest quality, the most thorough, and Louisville KY’s #1 Home Inspection Company for protecting you, the buyer! Always has been, always will be.
Servicing Louisville KY and surrounding areas with the highest quality Home Inspections available for over 19 years with a perfect Better Business Bureau record.
We work for YOU! , not Real Estate Agents.. We do not solicit agents, period!! And never will! And many so called “Real Estate Professionals” will try to steer you away from us preventing a thorough evaluation of the home because we find so much more than other Home Inspection Companies here in Louisville.
We Are Confident and Competent.. We were the ONLY Home 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 for 10 full years with never a complaint and after 20 years still 0 client complaints (Well except the crazy one who sued us for not telling her that her commodes were high efficiency, the law of the United States), now the State protects you in the Home Inspector Licensing Law which went into effect June of 2006. ALL of our complaints come from Realtors, and THAT should tell you something about them!
We were certified by the American Society of Home Inspectors in 1996 long before any state required licensing. (No longer a member since we felt their extensive advertising over teaching habits in our monthly newsletters were counterproductive and not worthy of our funds)
What To Expect?… The most thorough Home Inspection in Louisville, KY available! Our over 30 years construction experience and 20 years inspecting over 7000 homes gives us the knowledge to know what to look for how to report what we see.
Our Chief Home Inspector Kenny Martin has been inspecting homes in and around the Louisville Metro almost 20 years and grew up in and around construction originally working doing rehabs on 100+ year old homes in and around Old Louisville.
We do not have a fancy website touting “special” tools that make people sound like SUPERMAN that really do not improve ones Inspection skills or knowledge overall, but then again we do have our fair share and more than almost all other Home Inspectors in Lou. KY.
Our many years in and around construction and Inspecting thousands of homes for our clients AND NOT FOR REALTORS make us the most thorough Home Inspection choice period!
We use a computerized reporting system, (available for view at the sample report link on top of each page), and include digital photos of all defects and maintenance needs we find at your new 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.
We spend on average 5-6 hours on every home inspection! 2.5 hrs inspecting the home and another 2 hours writing the report is pretty much the minimum ever.. Double what most spend! We do not rush any inspection, if it takes 4, 5 or 6 hours we take our time to ensure thoroughness.
The only way we ever do more than 1 Home Inspection in a day is if both are very small ensuring you always get the needed attention while we are at the Home Inspection allowing you to ask more questions.
Walk WITH your Home Inspector.. you will receive maintenance information unique to your home and learn more about the home in just a few hours than living in the home for years so bring a pad and paper and make notes of minor things which may be important to you as a new Home Buyer.
Unlike many Home 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 fungus (molds) and structural issues and yet many other Home Inspectors decline entering referring to certain potential safety hazards.
Our Home Inspections are usually twice as thorough as other Home Inspection companies and without exaggeration up to 20 times more thorough, (We know because we have been shown previous inspection reports of some homes we have inspected) we save you more because we find more, every-time, period!!
We can’t get out of any home these days without AT LEAST 75 photos of issues in need of either repair or maintenance, that way you are more equipped with the knowledge you need to maintain your home and be ready for a smooth home sale when you choose to sell your home and we explain which items are typical, which are not, which are major, minor etc.
Pay a little more for a Home Inspection now and you won’t have to pay more after you move in or when you sell your home due to unexpected repairs (excluding normal wear and tear and potential hidden defects) .
If any Home Inspector spends less than 3 hours inspecting your home and 2 hours more preparing the report you are likely NOT getting a thorough Home Inspection! That’s 5 hours total for an average size home and increases dependent on size and condition.
