I am a Washington state-licensed home inspector, license #341. I have been working as a home inspector since 2003.
When you hire me, I will perform a detailed inspection of all of the systems and components in your home and provide a detailed written report to you of any problems. I provide very detailed descriptions without any contractor jargon, along with digital photographs and recommendations for how to correct the problem.
I am also licensed as a structural pest inspector, which not all home inspectors are. This gives me the ability to inspect for termites, carpenter ants, wood-boring beetles and other wood-destroying organism.
I perform inspections between Everett and Tacoma, but will go farther, depending on the situation. I inspect condominium units, mobile homes, townhouses, houses, and multifamily housing. I also perform new construction inspections.
Established in 2003, Lasswell Home Inspection LLC was founded by me, John Lasswell, and I have been working full-time as a home inspector ever since.
In 2005, I trained as a FEMA disaster inspector and maintain that certification and am prepared to deploy, should a major disaster strike the Pacific Northwest.
In 2010, I became licensed with the EPA as a certified repair remodeling and painting instructor and now teach certification classes for contractors to work with lead-based paints in pre-1978 housing. I am currently teaching 1 to 2 classes per month.
