The City of Fremont has launched remote video building inspections for limited types of building permits for single family residential projects as an alternative to an inspector completing an in-person inspection. The video inspections are limited to single family residential projects with the following permit types:
- Single Family Residential Reroof Permit
- Single Family Residential Water Heater Replacement Permit
- Single Family Residential Air Conditioning Upgrade Permit
- Single Family Residential Furnace Replacement Permit
Inspections are performed using either the FaceTime (iOS) or Google Duo (Android) apps. In order to connect to the video call and interact with the building inspector, applicants and contractors need to use a smartphone or tablet with a 4G or 5G wireless service connection.
For more information on how to schedule remote video building inspections, please visit our video inspections webpage or contact Building Inspection at 510-494-4400 or by email.
