INSPECTIONS
There are a number of inspections required in each of the four codes (building, electrical, mechanical and plumbing) therefore, you
must call us when you are ready for each type of inspection.  Work must not proceed before the job is inspected and approved to
continue.  NOTE: EACH PERMIT MUST BE OBTAINED SEPARATELY.  The most common inspections are:

BUILDING:
FOOTING – Must be inspected after the forms are in place but prior to any concrete being poured.
BACKFILL - This inspection is only required for wood foundations.
ROUGH- IN – When framing is completed, but BEFORE drywall and insulation and AFTER electrical, mechanical, and plumbing
inspection are approved
FINAL – When the project is complete and ready for occupancy and AFTER electrical, mechanical and plumbing final inspections are
approved.  Final grade must be completed and all excess building materials removed from the site.

ELECTRICAL:

SERVICE – When service is complete and ready for hook up.  Please be sure to include your Energy Request Number.
ROUGH-IN – Before insulating or drywalling, when wiring which will be hidden is complete
FINAL - When all fixtures are set, plates are on and the building is ready to be occupied

MECHANICAL:
UNDERGROUND – After any piping or ducts have been installed underground, before you backfill or pour concrete.
ROUGH-IN – Before insulating, drywalling or concealing; any gas piping, fireplaces, ducts, chases, duct work or chimneys need to be
firestopped and inspected.  All gas piping requires a pressure test and inspection prior to use
FINAL – When all mechanical equipment (furnace, heat pump, boiler, air conditioning, exhaust fans and exhausts hoods) is complete,

PLEASE, remember each job is different and goes at a different pace.  Therefore, we have no idea when you are ready for
inspections unless you contact us to let us know.  Also, please make sure that you are actually ready for inspection, because extra
trips by the inspector could cost you an extra fee.
