Residential Inspections

The home inspection is your way of ensuring that you know the condition of the home you are purchasing (your investment).

Commercial Inspections

The objective of a commercial building inspection is to assist owners and buyers in understanding operation and maintenance required.

Ancillary Services

Additional services are available to compliment your inspection. Some services are performed “in-house” while others are sub-contracted through a trusted third party provider.

Our Company

Inspector Cluseau’s Home Inspection Service was founded in 1992 by Owner/President – Ken Ledford. To date, we have performed over 21,000 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 four full time licensed inspectors on staff, we are well equipped to accommodate your need for a thorough inspection in a timely manner.

Ken Ledford

Inspector / Previous Owner

TN Licensed Home Inspector
TN Certified WDO Inspector

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.

With Billy’s hands-on real world experience in the real estate industry, he was a great candidate to bring on as a licensed home inspector with Inspector Cluseau. He has proven to fit the role perfectly in the years he has been on our team. He has a great knowledge base to know the technical aspects of the trade and that is coupled with his interpersonal skills he learned from years past as an agent.
