Please speak with an inspector if our needing a specific time for you inspection. Thank you for your understanding. 

Please be aware that only a licensed HVAC professional is allowed to pull permits & call for inspections.

Please be aware if you are doing a type of work that falls into one of these categories you will need to call for that inspection. It is up to you to know which inspections you will need and when you will need to call for them.
