Inspection Services 

Schedule an Inspection

Due to the high volume of permit submittals, we encourage inspections be scheduled online via the BS&A database  or by calling our inspection line at 248-594-2818. For more information on accessing online inspections, please see our Online Inspection Process Brochure.

Arrange an inspection time: Contact the Building Division at 248-433-7715 between 7:00 AM – 8:00 AM the morning of the scheduled inspection to get a time frame from the inspector. You may have to leave a message and they will return your phone call. If a phone call is not made during that time, the inspector will arrange an inspection time based on their schedule for the day.
 

Generally, inspections are performed at the foundation, rough, insulation and final stages. Other inspections may be required during construction depending on the extent of the construction project. Inspections are required for all permitted work.
