Some large commercial construction projects may require Third Party inspectional services and a pre-arranged inspection schedule 

In some instances a timely on site inspection may not be available for some residential construction projects, namely after hours and weekends. The town has accepted a "Virtual Inspection" method for these moments. 

Virtual inspections, photos and videos of the work are permitted for the following:

  • Pier footings for decks, porches, sheds and non-heated additions (3 season or screen porch).
  • Exposed underground trenches for placement of sewer, septic pipe and or electrical conduit.
  • Light structural frame for decks, porches, sheds, etc., and accessory structures.
  • Insulation – finished basements, and minor renovations to existing dwellings.

Each portion of a building and structure will be inspected for minimum standard compliance under the current adopted Building, Plumbing, Mechanical and NFPA - National Electrical Codes.
