How do I schedule an inspection?
Periodically throughout the construction process, the homeowner/contractor has to request an inspection before the work can proceed. The homeowner/contractor must request an inspection. There are two ways to request these inspections:

Call (804) 966-8572, the Inspection Line: whereby you can request an inspection;
Call (804)966-9680, to speak to a customer service representative, and request your inspection;

Please be sure all the work is completed to the point of the requested inspection.
