About Highland Home Inspections
Licensed & Certified Home Inspector
Meet David Home Inspector Rossinow
David started his business, Highland Home Inspections, Inc., in 2005 after he closed his gallery in Martha’s Vineyard following 13 years operating one of New England’s finest, one of a kind, hand-made craft galleries. David had been an accomplished professional studio potter for over three decades. At this time of personal reinvention, he assessed his future options. David built his first home, an open concept timber frame house in Vermont in the early 1980s. His second home was what his architect described as a 2300 square foot “Victorian Cottage” in Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard. In between David has owned several other properties, which he has improved or renovated. He always seemed to find himself helping friends and family figure out what was wrong with their properties and just LOVED buildings of any sort. Architecture had always been ones of David’s callings, but designing and building his own house with his own hands had been an even stronger calling. David chose to become a licensed home inspector to help people like you feel comfortable, informed, and confident when making decisions about home purchasing.
David is a licensed Massachusetts Home Inspector (#654), a Certified Inspector with the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI ACI#245730), and a Certified Residential Radon Measurement Provider with the National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP), Certification #104691 RT.
Going the Extra Mile to Build Lasting Relationships
Once an inspection is complete, many inspectors will accept their fee and you will never see or hear from them again. Not David! David prides himself on the fact that when his clients have a question – even years after their inspection – he encourages them to contact him. David doesn’t stop being a resource for his clients just because the inspection is over. Questions will come up as you learn to maintain your home, and David and his inspectors will always make themselves available to answer your questions or assist in finding an appropriate resource.
Inspector Michael Perrella
Michael Perrella works alongside David at Highland Home Inspections, Inc. Having been raised by a builder of custom homes, Michael is very knowledgeable about the construction industry and the proper methods for building a home. Michael first began visiting construction sites at age 10, cleaning debris and sweeping floors. Soon, he was taught the proper way to swing a hammer and hit a nail. It wasn’t long before Michael was building wall assemblies and installing windows. It was a wonderful introduction to the trade.
Michael’s Background and Experience
After attending Northeastern University, Michael joined his father building homes all over New England. Michael spent 20 years being involved in all aspects of the construction process, from site work, to plumbing and electric, to finish trim work. Understanding the reasons that certain techniques are used in framing provided an analysis-based approach as to why structural issues occur and the proper ways to correct them. After retiring from the construction industry, Michael spent the next 15 years in retail management, primarily at The Home Depot. It was during this time that a friend of Michael’s called and asked if he could do a walkthrough with him at several homes he was considering purchasing. That call brought Michael back into the Home Inspection Industry and his current position with Highland Home Inspections, Inc.
