The City of Carrollton conducts once a day inspections by an array of inspectors who are highly experienced and can answer all your inspection questions. Inspection results are easily found on our website shortly after their visit.
The City of Carrollton conducts Pre-Construction meetings after you have received your construction permit. The city project manager will contact you to set up this meeting, held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8:30 am.
This free meeting will bring together several Carrollton departments to help answer all your building questions concerning your project. You will receive a Pre-Construction manual to help guide you during construction to all building inspection services, including how to scheduling inspections using the IVR system, an automated phone scheduling system.
Contractors, please bring a construction schedule with milestones and an anticipated completion date.
Approximately one month prior to finishing your project, a pre-Certificate of Occupancy (Pre-C/O) meeting should be scheduled. The inspection project manager will provide a list of any outstanding items needed to be completed before you can receive your C/O.
A Certificate of Occupancy Guide is available to provide further instructions when planning for the completion of the project.
To aid in receiving approved inspections, the following checklist is helpful to see what the inspector will be reviewing.
