Virtual Inspections a quick and convenient option
Save time and trouble with a convenient Virtual Inspection of your home project. Some permit holders can schedule a convenient and less-intrusive inspection using their smartphone or tablet, with Skype, Facetime, or another web-based site. See if your home project may qualify. Virtual inspections reduce wait times for re-inspection of minor corrections. Contact your inspector to see if you can get out your device, your flashlight and tape measure, and take a virtual look at your home improvement project.

Protect your home from wildland fires. Hot summer days mean hotter temperatures, drier conditions and increased wildfire danger. There are active steps property owners can take to protect their structures from wildfire hazards. Keep your family safe.
