New Construction Inspections
New constructions require several inspections. Applicants must call for inspections. The inspector must have 24 hours advance notice to perform the inspection. You may submit your request by calling the INSPECTION LINE at (832) 381-3298.

Any work that does not conform to permit-approved plans will require reinspection and additional inspection fees. If the work continues without resolving the problem, a stop work order will be issued. 

Building Inspections
Foundation inspections occur after trenches are excavated and forms are erected. Frame inspections occur after the roof, framing, and fireblocking and bracing are in place. All wiring, pipes, chimneys, ducts, and vents that should be concealed must be concealed. The final building inspection occurs after the building is completed and ready for occupancy. 

Electrical Inspections
Underground inspections take place after trenches and ditches are excavated and conduits and cables are installed before backfilling. Rough-in inspections occur after the roof, framing, and fireblocking and bracing are in place and prior to the installation of wall and ceiling membranes. The final electrical inspection occurs after the building is complete, all required electrical fixtures are in place and properly connected and protected, and the structure is ready for occupancy. 

Fence Inspections

A permit is required for fence construction. The City will investigate any violations of fence provisions, including a failure to maintain a fence within the provisions.
