How is my work inspected?
Inspectors will check to make sure that work is done according to code. Contractors or homeowners doing their own work must 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.
