To Schedule an Inspection
Inspections can be scheduled Tuesday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Same-day or next-day inspections may not be available, but all inspections will be completed as soon as possible.
Do not call in inspection requests until all work is complete and ready for a final inspection. Failed inspections may accrue additional fees (PDF). When requesting an appointment (either online or by calling 817-985-2132), please leave your best contact information during normal business hours.
This department also reviews plans prior to issuing permits and performs general field inspections of commercial and residential construction.
Inspections Performed Include
There may be up to a 10-day window for completing the following:
- Air conditioning change-outs
- Other permits for which no further work is required by the contractor and work is not delayed by the need for an inspection
- Water heater replacements
Inspections Required for Natural Gas Service
If your natural gas company (e.g., Atmos) requires that an inspection be performed by City staff before providing service to your home or business, you will need to contact a licensed plumber to perform a pressure test on the piping and verify that the gas system and its components are up to code. The plumber will request the inspection after being issued a permit and completing the work.
