How to Schedule After-hours Inspections Storm Damage Emergencies

Inspections are conducted on a single family home, one- and two-family dwelling, or townhome after construction is complete. Having work inspected lets everyone know that the work has been done safely and correctly.

How to Schedule

Inspections should be scheduled via a registered account in the Permit and Development Portal. Watch a tutorial video on how to schedule inspections.

You can reschedule or cancel an inspection via the permit portal up until the day of your inspection. If you must reschedule or cancel an inspection the day of, email Field Services as soon as possible. 

A reinspection fee will be charged for any inspection that is rescheduled or cancelled the day of.

Storm Damage

We often know when a storm is coming, but we can't predict the damage that may happen to our personal property. Check the After the Storm FAQ for important information on what to do if your property is damaged during a storm event. 


Should an emergency happen on your property and emergency services are called to the scene, the on-site official will contact the proper City of Raleigh staff in order to assess the situation.
