Our Company

Inspector Cluseau’s Home Inspection Service was founded in 1992 by Owner/President – Ken Ledford. To date, we have performed over 19,000 residential inspections and over 4,000 commercial inspections.

Our company prides itself in being the most thorough, honest, and reliable inspection service available. Our main objective is to inform our clients of the current condition of the property being inspected.

We have no invested interest in whether a property is purchased or not, our goal is to report the exact condition of the property. No matter the age, size, or location of the home, we promise to use the same high standards for every inspection we perform.

With two full time licensed inspectors on staff, we are well equipped to accommodate your need for a thorough inspection in a timely manner.

About Us

Ken Ledford


Ken Ledford is a native of Knoxville, Tennessee where he was raised. After enjoying a successful career in the mechanical engineering industry, Ken decided to apply his leadership and management skills, along with his attention to detail, to the inspection field. To the benefit of the home inspection industry, in 1992 he made the switch.

At first, the inspections were just part time. But as word spread of the excellent work, more and more inspections were being performed and Ken decided to forgo the engineering field and pursue the inspection industry full time.

The rest is history. 26 years later, Ken is still performing inspections full time with the same enthusiastic energy as when he began. Kens knowledge and experience are second to none. These attributes are exemplified in every inspection he performs.
