Scheduling an Inspection

It is the property owner's responsibility to make sure that all required inspections are made on a project, including both in-progress inspections and the final inspection. The contractor, however, may schedule the inspections and be the one on-site for each one.

Inspection requests can be made 24 hours a day. Requests made before 6:00 p.m. will be scheduled for the following work day. Requests made after 6:00 p.m. and on weekends or holidays will be scheduled two working days later.

Re-inspections and Correction Notices

If permit work does not pass inspection the first time, a re-inspection is necessary. As part of the inspection, applicants receive a correction notice from the inspector. Once those corrections have been made, the customer must reschedule an inspection. A  re-inspection fee and other charges for the new scope of the permit would be required.

SMUD and PG&E Safety Inspection Requests

Safety Inspections authorize one inspection per discipline (gas plumbing and/or electrical). If inspectors are unable to access the property, including the interior, to perform this inspection, a new safety inspection request must be obtained. If the safety inspection result is failed, a separate building permit is required prior to commencement of repair work and scheduling additional inspections.
