About Me

I am Shawn Waruszewski, co-owner of Hemlock Homes and principal home inspector.  I am a certified home inspector. As a previous home builder, my broad range of knowledge in the construction field allows me to work as an outstanding advocate for you during the home buying, selling and inspection processes, and make certain that you know what you are buying.


My experience and attention to detail makes a difference in whether your home inspection is done right.

Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you.

Hemlock Home inspection services are conducted in accordance to the standards of practice and code of ethics established by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors.



First, let me start by saying thank you for your expert knowledge, your meticulous attention to detail, and your unwavering patience with a less than happy homeowner. I found your service to be very insightful and you found things I would not have thought of looking for/at. I also found your report very easy to read and navigate and I will recommend your services to any one looking to have a home inspected.

Your flexible schedule and commitment to get the job done no matter what it took was what sold me on how you do business and that trait is very hard to find in business today. I wish you all the best in what you do and for many years to come. 

Thank you once again,

Jeff Franklin

P.S. Don’t be surprised when we invite you over for dinner after we move in to our new home!


“We were very impressed with the professional attitude and extremely detailed report that you submitted from your inspection of our, (now) new home in Whitehall, MI.


As you were aware, we had been negotiating on the property from overseas, and were experiencing extreme stress with the “not knowing” aspect of buying a new home, as it is such a huge investment.


Your home inspection report was very concise, expertly presented, and very timely. This took the guess work out of our negotiations, along with the stress, and we are now in possession of a lovely home in Whitehall, MI.


Thank you for that “peace of mind” on our recent purchase. We couldn’t be more pleased with the whole experience.”

Thank you for the very professional report! It was great seeing the photos...I forgot many of the details, or perhaps did not notice them as we were in the home.


We look forward to seeing you face to face.


Best Regards,

Pat Jones

Thank you very much for the report.  It details everything we found during the inspection.  I appreciate the extra time and effort put into this inspection, not to mention the willingness to travel an hour and a half to get to the property.   I will definitely recommend Hemlock Homes (Shawn) to anyone looking for a professional detailed home inspector. 


Thanks again,
