How to use Remote Inspection


Step 1. Is My Permit Eligible?



Remote virtual inspection is an alternative to traditional onsite inspection and can be used to provide promt and safe interior building inspection services. It is our goal to continue providing excellent inspection response times while keeping the public and staff safe. We will be using remote virtual inspections for all AC changeouts and window and door replacements and for other interior inspections as appropriate. Remote Virtual Inspections are conducted using a Skype video call on a smart phone or tablet to interact with the building inspector. See below for detailed instructions.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation while conducting this new method of doing inspections.

Please read the step-by-step instructions carefully.



The Eligible permit types:


  • AC Changeout
  • Window replacement
  • Door replacement
