When will Inspector arrive?

In an effort to allow contractors and homeowners the opportunity to estimate a two-hour window of time when their inspector may arrive to perform the inspection, the On-Line Daily Inspection Sequence List has been developed. While it is the responsibility of the person scheduling the inspection to ensure that someone is at the project site when the inspector arrives, we understand the value of your time and are trying to be as efficient and time-considerate as possible. The example below is not a guaranteed window of time, but may assist in estimating the Time of Arrival (ETA) for the inspector.



Time of Day Inspection Sequence Number Time of Day Inspection Sequence Number
8:00a.m.-10:00a.m. 1-4 8:00a.m.-10:00a.m. 1-4
10:00a.m.-12:00p.m. 5-8 10:00a.m.-12:00p.m. 5-8
12:00p.m.-03:30p.m. 9 - 13 12:00p.m.-3:30p.m. 9-13

The IVR (Interactive Voice Response System) system is an automated voice response system used via a touch tone phone to schedule your construction inspections. With the introduction of the IVR system you will be using your touch-tone phone to schedule inspections, along with other available functions to serve you better. For best results, you may want to use a land-line for scheduling inspections as cell phones are subject to signal loss and may not schedule the inspection. After scheduling your inspection do not hang-up, wait for your confirmation number at the end. A confirmation number must be received in order for the inspection to have been scheduled.

Timeline for Inspection Scheduling and Cancellation:

Scheduling: An inspection can be scheduled up to 11:59 p.m today for an inspection tomorrow, or up to 5 days in advance.

Canceling an inspection: An inspection scheduled for tomorrow can be canceled up to 11:59 p.m today.
