Inspections can be scheduled by using our online permits website.
When scheduling online you first search for the permit. While you are looking at the details of the permit, and if the permit is in an Issued status, use the “I want to…” feature to “Schedule Inspection.”

Our system is designed to prevent back-to-back inspection requests that often lead to the canceling of requests and radically impacting the workload. The results from the first inspection must be updated in the permitting system before additional inspections can be scheduled.
Our inspectors spend most of their time in the field, but are usually available between 6:30 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. before they start their inspections for the day. If you did not catch your inspector before they have left for the field, you may not hear back from them until the next working day. We make every effort to return all calls within one working day.
