Meet Your Inspector

Jared’s journey into the world of home inspection is a testament to his rich background in construction, education, and a genuine passion for craftsmanship. Raised in Kapaau, North Kohala, Jared was steeped in a family legacy of builders. His father, an electrical contractor, and his stepfather, a general contractor, introduced him to the world of construction at an early age. Surrounded by diverse construction sites, Jared quickly became a hands-on learner and honed his skills in the trades. His upbringing instilled in him a deep appreciation for the meticulous art of building, emphasizing precision and attention to detail.

After earning a bachelor’s degree in scenic design from the University of Oregon, Jared seamlessly merged his academic background with his hands-on expertise. He joined the family business, where he dedicated himself to crafting custom homes from the ground up, showcasing his proficiency from conceptualization to completion.

Simultaneously, Jared applied his college degree by spearheading the development of a technical theatre program at Hawai’i Preparatory Academy. His role extended to designing and constructing sets for high school theatre productions, exemplifying his versatile talents.

In 2010, Jared transitioned into full-time teaching, taking on the role of educating students in stagecraft and woodworking at HPA. His passion for imparting knowledge and shaping young minds was evident, making his tenure at the academy immensely fulfilling.

However, the construction industry’s physical demands began to take their toll on Jared’s body. The ceaseless exposure to sawdust and chemical applications prompted him to seek a career that allowed him to channel his extensive construction and teaching experience while providing respite for his physical well-being. He also harbored a burning desire to embark on a new challenge—launching and managing his own business, where he could be his own boss.

This is where the world of home inspection beckoned. Although not mandated by the state, Jared’s commitment to excellence led him to become a certified home inspector. He successfully passed the rigorous National Home Inspector Exam, further underscoring his unwavering dedication, commitment, and profound respect for the home inspection industry.

Today, as a certified home inspector, Jared blends his wealth of construction wisdom, education, and innate attention to detail to serve you in making informed decisions about your home. When you choose Jared for your home inspection needs, you’re entrusting your property to a seasoned professional who brings not only expertise but also a genuine passion for solidifying your peace of mind.

Buyers Inspections

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. Before you buy, you should have a home inspection to avoid potentially costly repairs that would otherwise go undetected until they become even more costly. This is our typical home inspection that catches common defects so you understand the investment you’re making.

Pre-Listing Inspections

Some homeowners want to make repairs to their house before they put it on the market and will make repairs using their inspection report as a baseline reference. Please understand that most buyers will still want to perform their own inspection even if the seller has already had an inspection done.

Final walk-through re-inspection

A final walkthrough reinspection is a detailed inspection of a property before closing to ensure it meets the buyer’s expectations and any agreed-upon repairs have been completed.

The Best Modern Report in the Industry​

While Rock Solid Home Inspections LLC encourages our clients to walk through the home with us, we understand that you may be too busy, and may not have time to do so.

We will deliver our report within 24 hours of the conclusion of your home inspection, so that you can quickly access a full overview of our findings – and discuss them with us and your agent.
