About Us


Westside Home Inspections serves (Los Angeles,West Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Venice, Culver City, Mar Vista and most of Los Angeles County). I am Jose Luis Barrera, a licensed general contractor and home remodeler for over fifteen years. I have remodeled and inspected older homes, new homes and condos in Los Angeles, and I’m ready to put my construction and inspection experience to work for you.

You may be a seller, looking to make your home more valuable to buyers. You might be a buyer, wanting to purchase with confidence. Or, maybe you want to make sure the home you own is safe and secure, with no expensive surprises around the corner. As a certified home inspector, I offer a wide range of services to fit your every inspection need.

Westside Home Inspections is my personal business, not a franchise operation or part of a large company more interested in quantity over quality. As owner, I focus all my attention on each individual inspection and on doing the best possible work for each client. Rather than creating onsite reports, which simply take a cookie cutter approach, I take the time to add important details unique to each individual property.

Since California does not require home inspectors to be licensed or certified, it is up to you, the consumer, to make sure the inspector you hire is qualified. Since I am both a certified home inspector and a licensed general contractor, you can rely on the quality of my work 100%.

I take pride in providing inspection reports that help you make informed decisions.

A thorough home inspection depends on the inspector’s own effort. I am known for my attention to detail and I always put 110% into any inspection. Why? Because I take pride in my work. And because your satisfaction is my goal.
