Inspection services provides professional inspections for all trades and disciplines that are required per the Hillsborough County Construction Code, Ordinance 12-5, including building, gas, plumbing, mechanical, electrical permits, as well as compliance with community codes for manufactured houses and mobile homes. Inspections are performed from site preparation through Certificate of Occupancy (CO), by qualified professionals.

Required Inspections
All construction permits obtained through Building & Construction require an inspection unless specifically exempted as part of the permit. All permits and plans must be posted on-site.

A re-inspection is required when permitted work fails to pass inspection. A re-inspection fee is charged.

Scheduling Inspections
Inspection requests can be made 7 days a week from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm through our online permitting system or by calling the Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS) at one of the following phone numbers:

IVRS is an automated system that will allow you to schedule, cancel, or check the status of an inspection. Recorded instructions are available when you call the IVRS. View a pamphlet giving detailed instructions on the use of the IVRS.

Inspections scheduled by 7:00 pm will generally be made the following workday. Inspection volume cannot be determined in advance and occasionally an inspection may roll over to the next day. Specific times cannot be given for inspections due to volume, fluctuation and varying times required for each inspection. 

Canceling or rescheduling an inspection, can only be done through our IVRS system. Same day cancellations are not possible using this system.
