DO YOU NEED TO USE A THIRD PARTY INSPECTION FIRM ON YOUR RESIDENTIAL PROJECT?
The Third-Party Inspections Program allows private-sector inspections firms to perform the following inspections on residential projects that would otherwise be conducted by the county:
- Placement of Concrete
- Foundation Footings and Walls
- Pier Footings
- Concrete Basement Slabs
- Structural Garage Slabs
- Stoop Inspections
- Concrete Encased Electrode (20' min.)
- Post-pour Concrete Inspection
- Helical Piers
- Cured-in-Place Pipe Liner (CIPP) Installations
- Waterproofing/Damp-proofing & backfill of concrete foundation walls
- Any residential retaining walls that are not subject to special inspections’ requirements
Information on retaining walls over 10 feet high.
How the Program Works
Step 1: A project owner or developer hires a county-approved third-party inspections firm.
Step 2: The project owner or developer applies to the county to have the project be inspected by a third-party inspections firm.
Step 3: The third-party inspections firm conducts inspections and submits their results to the county.
Step 4: County inspectors will verify all required third-party inspections are approved and have been entered into the system prior to entering a final on the record.
