What Special Inspection
Services do We Offer

Odd, unique, or one of a kind projects that require special attention and expertise. Special inspections vary throughout the country (complexity, verification, legislation).

Frequently, local jurisdictions don’t have in-house staff to inspect these complexities, therefore the building official can request 3rd party independent experts to fulfill the inspections. That’s where we come in. We understand special inspections and are certified in your area. Reach out to us to see if we can serve your Special inspection needs.
