My name is Jon LaRose and as owner/inspector of Sound Structure Home Inspections, LLC, I strive to provide the highest quality inspection service available at an affordable price. I’m both an ASHI and InterNACHI Certified Master Inspector with 2,000+ onsite inspections under my belt, ranging from residential to commercial. In addition, I’m licensed as a Washington State Home Inspector (#1285) and trained through Carson Dunlop for Commercial Inspections.
I have deep roots in the Puget Sound area having grown up here and attended the University of Washington graduating with a Bachelor’s in Economics. After college I settled into my home in the South Sound where my wife and I raised our family. Previously, I worked for consulting firms and at Boeing for more than a decade before making a career change and pursuing my passion for the home inspection industry. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my wife of 34+ years, our grown daughters and our five adopted dogs. I also enjoy snow sports, horseback riding, soccer, and running.
I’m also pleased to introduce Matt Shirer who joined Sound Structure Home Inspections in September 2020. He’s an inspector I personally trained when we both worked for a multi-inspector firm and he has performed over 1,500 inspections in the Puget Sound area. In addition to his WA State Home Inspector license (#1607), Matt holds a Thermal Imaging certificate and is a standing member of InterNACHI. Prior to becoming a home inspector he spent several years working in real estate and construction.
In Matt’s own words “I love what I do because it puts me in different places with different faces everyday and its never the same from day to day. I really enjoy working with new buyers who want to know and learn about their big purchase as well as easing some of the nervousness involved with a major purchase. I also enjoy Fishing, Boating, and Football. I have been Married 15+ years and have kids aged 14, 11, and 5. As a family we enjoy camping, hiking and vacations in Hawaii.”
Regardless of which of us is performing the inspection, we utilize the latest technologies and adhere to Washington State standards to perform a complete assessment of your prospective home or property. You will receive an on-site review of key findings and a state-of-the-art electronic report. We both follow similar procedures and utilize the same reporting template, so you can count on consistency. Our approach towards inspecting is to always be thorough yet non-alarming.
Give us a call, we look forward to serving you with all of your property inspection needs!
