Due to the recent delays in window/door production and delivery, Charlotte County has implemented a new temporary procedure for framing and insulation inspections.
When requesting a framing or insulation inspection and the windows/doors are unavailable, the contractor must make a note in the inspection request comment box (online) or tell the customer service specialist that the windows/doors are unavailable. If everything in the field is constructed according to plans and codes, minus the windows/doors, the inspector will result the framing and insulation inspection as a “partial” inspection and the project may continue. The contractor will then be responsible for re-scheduling the framing and insulation inspections once the windows/doors are installed. The re-scheduled inspections should be called in on the same day so the department can send one inspector out to conduct both inspections.
Hopefully this will allow projects to keep moving while production catches up. If you have any questions, please contact Daryl Dillow, Deputy Building Official, at 941.743.1249 or Daryl.Dillow@charlottecountyfl.gov.
