Due to the Covid-19 virus outbreak, for the safety of staff and the public, the City of Port Orange has launched virtual inspections which allows an inspector to remotely view the site using a webcam device or smartphone controlled by the homeowner or contractor. We are currently using Microsoft Teams to perform virtual inspections.
Please note that due to overload of "in-home" requests, at this time, it may take an inspector up to 48 hours to schedule your inspection.
We are offering the following “in-home” virtual inspections at this time:
Virtual inspections are only being conducted on inspections with components inside a resident-occupied dwelling. (Does not include a garage.)
Air conditioning change outs
Water heater change outs
Other “in-home” inspections deemed appropriate by the Building Official
