Can I get my work inspected as soon as possible?

The City of Jersey Village is now offering on-demand inspections for certain permits. This means that when all work is complete and ready for inspection, the installer, homeowner, or contractor can text or call BBG (third party inspector provider) at 281-317-0507 prior to leaving the work site to conduct their inspection virtually through FaceTime or GoogleDuo. 

Once the inspection address and permit number have been verified, the call will be dispatched to a certified BBG inspector within 15 minutes or less of the initial call being received. No additional apps or fees will be required to complete the inspection on-demand.
