Self Inspections

A Self inspection is the most efficient and convenient alternative to an on-site inspection


Some building-related inspections (Building, Electrical, Mechanical, Plumbing, Energy, and Certificate of Occupancy) may be considered for self-inspections; however, based on the size and/or complexity of the project, it may not be possible to conduct a self-inspection.

Currently, Water Heater, Reroof, and Solar are eligible for a self-inspection.

However, a self-inspection will also be considered during a Virtual Inspection if there is poor quality internet reception.
