City of Marietta Now Scheduling Virtual Inspections


February 8, 2021

CONTACT: Lindsey Wiles

Communications Manager


MARIETTA - The City of Marietta is now requiring all "stand-alone" MEP inspections, such as water heaters and HVAC changeouts, in occupied homes be accomplished virtually by way of the Webex application. This is available for free for both Android and IOS devices. This provides a safer and cleaner inspection process for our residents and inspectors and can be done the day of installation during normal working hours.

It is the responsibility of the permitting contractor to ensure installers on-site have Webex capability. We will not do a virtual inspection with the homeowner, as your installer is the representative of your permitted work on each site.  

When an inspection is needed, the installer will call our main number, 770-794-5659, Option 8 and leave a voicemail for our inspector.

This voicemail shall include:

  1. Site address
  2. Installer’s and company name
  3. Installer’s phone number
  4. Requested time for inspection

Please provide a 30 minute window for inspection time and schedule at least 1 hour in advance.

We will contact you via Webex for the inspection, or contact you prior to the inspection via your phone number to discuss any possible conflicts.

If same day inspection is not possible (work completed outside of normal working hours), a video of the inspection can be accepted in lieu of virtual inspection. Email video to Senior Residential Inspector Jennifer Thorn at . Video will be reviewed and inspection will be approved or failed and results emailed to applicant via Sages software.

This does, per code, require that you have your permit purchased and displayed on site at the time of the installation/ inspection. Our inspector will guide the inspection, beginning with verifying site address.

Please call 770-794-5659, Option 8 for any questions or concerns.
