Virtual Building Inspections

The Building Division is pleased to announce that its customers may now request virtual inspections for AC change outs, water heaters, window and door replacements and garage doors. Through this option, the contractor and residents can coordinate and plan on a set appointment time. It is quick and convenient, and there's no more waiting on the inspector to show up.

Virtual inspection allows the installer and the city inspector to communicate in real time through video conferencing via Skype. All the contractor needs is a smartphone with the Skype app downloaded. Building Division staff is happy to help set up the account on the user’s phone and schedule the virtual inspection.

To learn more, please call the Building Division at 352-334-5050, or email bldg@cityofgainesville.org and ask about signing up for virtual inspections.
