We Review the History

We encourage you to read the minutes of the strata council meetings, which will review the history of the building, as far back as you can obtain them, and to highlight any areas of concern, such as water or moisture ingress, roofing concerns, plumbing situations, etc., which can be discussed during the inspection. Also, find out if there have been any engineering reports on the building and obtain a copy (your realtor should help to obtain all documents for review). We then will find out if any work was to be done, as mentioned in the reports, and if it was carried out or tabled for a later date. We will find out and look at any past major upgrades which were done to the building, re-plumbing, rain screening, windows, slab or foundation membrane, roofing, etc.


Our inspectors are highly trained in the home inspection industry and are licensed by Consumer Protection BC, members of Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of BC, British Columbia Institute of Property Inspectors, and the Better Business Bureau of BC.

What Our Clients Have Said

Carlie P.

We have used Vaughn from Inside Out home inspection twice now and have nothing but great things to say. He is thorough and efficient and does a great job of explaining potential issues in their varying degrees of seriousness. He is also very funny which is an added bonus. He was recommended to us by our realtor and we would absolutely recommend him to anyone we know.
