What Is Included In a Home Inspection?

Included in Every Liberty Inspections Home Inspection:

The growing housing market in Clarksville, TN and the surrounding areas has created a buzz about home inspections. Many first time home buyers or sellers want to know, “What does a home inspection cover?” Answers may vary depending on whom you ask. You should search for a home inspector that will provide the most comprehensive home inspection possible. At Liberty Inspections, for the state of Kentucky we follow the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors  standards of practice; for Tennessee we follow Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance standards of practice to ensure we’re providing you with complete and reliable inspection services.

We breakdown our inspection process into the following categories:


We will inspect the exterior of your home from top to bottom, including a roof inspection.

  • Roof
  • Skylights, chimneys and other roof penetrations
  • Gutters and downspouts
  • Eaves, soffits and fascias visible from the ground
  • Wall coverings, flashing and trim
  • Exterior doors
  • Decks, balconies, stoops, steps, porches and railings
  • Plants, grading, drainage and retaining walls

A complete home inspection will include an investigation into your home’s plumbing system.

Your Home Inspection Report

After Liberty Inspections has completed your home inspection, your Liberty Inspections inspector will conduct an onsite walk through of their findings with you. This allows you to see first-hand what was learned during the home inspection. Your report will be delivered electronically to you the same day as home inspection, typically within an hour.

Not to worry though if you are unavailable for the walk through, every home inspection done by Liberty Inspections comes with a comprehensive home inspection report detailing our findings in full. Your Liberty Inspections inspector will include comments, pictures, and videos so that your report is easily understood in the absence of an in-person walk through.

You have two option for viewing your home inspection report:

  1. You can view your home inspection report using our interactive web based report system
  2. You will then have the option to view and/or download the PDF version
