HouseMaster is the largest and most experienced home inspection company in North America. We have been in business since 1979 and have completed over 2.5 million home inspections. Our local office in Farmington Hills covers Southeast Michigan and has been owned and operated by Tom Rusco since 1997.
In Michigan, there are no legal requirements to be a home inspector, so clients and agents must select a company that will provide them the necessary credentials and expertise to insure a complete and thorough home inspection. HouseMaster requires our inspectors to have either the National Institute of Building Inspectors (NIBI) or the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) certifications. Our inspectors are:
Rob Pace - Chief Inspector. NIBI certified. 12 years of home inspection experience having completed over 4,000 inspections. Rob's background is in home construction as his father owned a construction business. Rob is trained/certified to perform all inspection services including Radon, Wood Destroying Insects, Septic Systems, Well Systems and Mold testing.

Tom Rusco - President/Owner. NIBI certified. 17 years of home inspection experience completing over 1,500 inspections. Tom's previous professional background was in business management and finance. Tom worked for several construction companies prior to owning TLR INC/dba HouseMaster Inspection Services. Tom manages the daily operations and is a state certified continuing education trainer teaching courses to the real estate community, home buyers and sellers.
HouseMaster's inspection system provides our clients with a computer report including digital photographs (embedded in the report) of defective elements. We deliver our reports the same day of the inspection. Our standard inspection includes a comprehensive review of the exterior, interior, foundation, attic, electrical, plumbing; heating, air conditioning and the built in kitchen appliances.
We also include our written 90 Day Repair Guarantee and our Information Resource Guide with each home inspection. As a national company, we are fully insured carrying Errors & Omissions and General Liability insurances to protect our clients and agents at the home inspection.
