Vaughn was recommended to us by our realtor, and saved us tens of thousands of dollars by finding multiple issues in the first house that we looked at. He was very quick to answer follow-up questions after the inspection, and was instrumental in our decision to back out of the sale. We requested him again with our next offer, and he was once again very patient with us as he walked us through all the issues in the house. We got a very thorough full inspection report that same evening, and went ahead with the purchase. I'll definitely be calling him again next time I need an inspection done!


Vaughn did a thorough inspection of our new condo. He walked us through every point in person, explaining terminology and technology, and he suggested remediation where necessary. All along, he was comprehensive and professional, but kept us laughing with jokes and stories. His light-hearted, friendly approach made the whole process easy and a lot of fun, and alleviated any worries we might have had.


Vaughn provides detailed reports and walks you through all the fine points of his findings in as much detail as you choose. He saved us from pulling the trigger on a home we probably would have regretted. His service was invaluable and I would recommend him to anyone that needs an inspection.


Vaughn was very professional and communicative through the entire inspection process. I had many questions, and he took time to patiently, expertly and thoroughly answer each one. Additionally he allowed me to shadow him during the inspection and walked me through his process. Vaughn exceeded my expectations by also inspecting the exterior of the condo building, the parking structure, storage locker area, and any exterior sidewalks, and appliances. He gave me an extremely detailed and thorough report and his insight at the end that allowed me to make a fully informed decision.


He is very professional, very knowledgeable, very friendly and very patient explaining and answering my clients questions…. Also que is very funny guy, it’s a pleasure to work with him.


Vaughn has been incredible. His inspections are thorough, he takes his time and we feel incredibly fortunate to get his detailed account on houses we inspect. I’m sure he has saved us some big headaches!

Vaughn is excellent. He has helped us evaluate many, many homes, and his inspections are always very thorough and his advice sound. He has given some homes a clean bill of health, and some he's steered us away from. But most are in between, and Vaughn has helped us think through what risks and expenses we'd be shouldering with each. Give him a call!

Jed Whittaker

We used Vaughn six times during our search for a home in Vancouver and were very pleased with his work. Clearly, buying a house in this town is a difficult process, but we felt especially confident relying on Vaughn's excellent inspections. He was always punctual, professional and thorough. His work helped us avoid a couple of nightmare homes and guided us towards the one we eventually bought. We enjoyed working with him a lot and would recommend him highly.

 James Stewart

I was extremely impressed with Vaughn at In Side Out Home Inspection. He is highly professional, knowledgable and proficient in his work. I was a first time buyer and Vaughn gave me a lot of peace of mind knowing that he was doing such a thorough and comprehensive job looking over my home. I would highly recommend his services. He was also easy to contact and always available for any questions I had before and after the inspection.

Courtney Lawrence

Mr. Vaughn was a consummate professional that made us feel very confident in making our home purchase. He left no stone unturned and provided expert tips on what to expect from the property in the future, and how to make it better. He is very thorough and knowledgeable home inspector and provides a detailed inspection report with pictures. Excellent service! I would definitely recommend Vaughn with In Side Out Home for anyone looking to have a home inspection.

Calin and Andra

We hired Vaughn to perform pre-purchase inspection for our new apartment. The whole experience was great, starting from very flexible scheduling on a relatively short notice, and finishing with the report, which we received just a couple hours after inspection ended. Vaughn was very though and professional. He provided a ton of advice and insight, which helped us with our purchasing decision. Vaughn's sense of humour was very appropriate and made the inspection a bit more entertaining, which was awesome, considering the stress you experience with such a big purchase. The pricing was quite reasonable too. I'll highly recommend Vaughn to all of my colleagues and friends.

 Sergey Meshkov

I hired In Side out home inspection for my new home inspection. Vaughn @ In Side Out was very thorough and personable. He went over every detail of his inspection as he walked through the property. This is also provided in his formal written report that can be used in the deficiency list. I highly recommend In Side Out Inspection. Best in class "inside out" !!

 Peter Chiu

We highly recommend using Vaughn Manley (Licence #50812) for home inspections. Vaughn is approachable and friendly with all of our clients, making them feel at ease and explaining to them in layman’s terms his findings during inspection. There never seems to be a question too difficult, nor too simple, for Vaughn to take the time to answer. His reports are thorough, yet punctual, and are always very informative. We have the utmost trust and confidence in Vaughn’s work, as we have seen helpful and profitable results from him time and time again. Definitely use Vaughn! He’s the best!

Matt Henry Team

I write this letter having been through our third inspection with the most competent individual in his field in my opinion. It was my greatest effort to purchase a home that I could fix up within reason. Never could my wife and I imagine the big picture and what you don’t see. Vaughn finds it even though I do have a basic construction background. He knows every detail need to present to you to make a competent decision, every detail. Vaughan was not recommended to me. I just spent a few days cold calling inspectors, when I called Vaughan he asked more questions than I did in our telephone interview. He is busy for a good reason and gets to the point. We ended up with the most amazing home after our frustration. In today’s market you need an absolute pro. I work as a 747 Captain and consider myself quite attentive to details... nothing on Vaughn. You are the best!

I am writing this letter of recommendation for In Side Out Home Inspection Inc. I have been a licensed realtor in Vancouver since 1985 and have sold in excess of 3,000 homes in this time. I have dealt with many home inspectors. I found Vaughn Manley (Licence #50812) to be a real professional. He is thorough and his knowledge is exceptional. He is also a real people person with great bedside manner. I would have Vaughn inspect a home I was buying.

I write to provide a recommendation for In Side Out Home Inspection Inc. It is my pleasure to provide a recommendation for In Side Out. I recently purchased my first home and engaged In Side Out to perform my inspection – my experience was excellent. Vaughn performed my inspection with great detail and professionalism. Vaughn not only provided a thorough written report but also took the time to explain his findings and address my concerns which, as a first home buyer, were many. Vaughn was patient, sincere and dependable, and I am not only recommending his services to you but have and will continue to recommend him to my friends and family.

Amber Freed

North Vancouver

To buy a home is probably the biggest and most important financial decision a person can make in their lifetime. As a realtor, I make sure my clients have the right tools to make the right decisions. When it comes to the home inspection, I know I can trust Vaughn not only as a dedicated professional, but as an honest one as well. That is why I have no reservation recommending Vaughn and the In Side Out Home Inspection team to all my clients and colleagues.

Juan Palacios, Realtor

Sutton Group Seafair Realty

I have worked with Vaughn Manley (Licence #50812) with In Side Out Home Inspection for the past 5 years. I have always been happy to refer Vaughn to all of my clients as he is very easy to talk to and explains the issues each home has in Basic English. He always offers ideas on how to alleviate the problems and gives general estimates so my clients can budget for future repairs. In many cases we have been able to renegotiate the purchase price to benefit the buyer up to $2,500 due to his inspections. His 32 years of building experience and easygoing nature make working with Vaughn a pleasure. He also provides a full written report and keeps a copy on file for us to refer to at a later date if needed. He is always easy to get a hold of and is very flexible in working with my schedule.

Jodi Steeves


I would like to take this opportunity to thank Vaughn Manley (Licence #50812) of In Side Out Home Inspection Inc. for the two home inspections he recently did for us. The first inspection cost us a few hundred dollars and saved us from a half a million dollar mistake! His report was extremely thorough and meticulous. He noticed the small details as well as larger concerns and gave us a detailed and professional report. I have used other property inspectors but have never had this level of service before. I am happy to say our family has now purchased a solid home that will not give us any nasty, expensive surprises now that Vaughn inspected and gave it the thumbs up! I can’t imagine what the result would have been if we had gone ahead with our first choice – unaware of the hazards that were not apparent to our untrained eyes! I would not hesitate to recommend Vaughn to friends and family or anyone else looking for an experienced, reliable and extremely thorough property inspector!

Just a note to say thank you for the excellent service you have been providing my clients, and I want you to know that all of them – myself included when I purchased my own home – have been very impressed with your knowledge, honesty and work ethic. I have recommended other inspectors in the past, but found that they don't even compare to the quality of your inspections, and you are always prompt, courteous and very personable. Also, the reports that you give and how you take time to explain everything is extremely helpful and appreciated. Guaranteed, anytime in the future that myself or my clients are in need of a home inspection, you will definitely be the one to call.
