How do I request an inspection?

You may call the inspection request line at 828-419-9372 or request an inspection through the Development Portal

All inspection requests must be submitted by 4:00 p.m. to be scheduled for the next business day. 

Inspection requests submitted after 4:00 p.m. are scheduled for the following business day. 

We cannot provide a time that the inspection will occur as the inspector plans his scheduled based on his assigned inspections each day. 

Incorrect or incomplete requests will not be scheduled for inspection.
