How is my work inspected?

Inspectors will check to make certain work is complete and installed according to the relevant code. Contractors (or homeowners doing their own work) must schedule online or call the department’s automated interactive voice response (IVR) system at 704-878-3113 to arrange for each inspection.

This system can be used to request inspections, obtain inspection results, cancel an inspection or check the status of a certificate of occupancy. To request inspections, verify or cancel inspections or to get inspection results you may use our

online options.
