City Electrical Inspections

All cities and villages have their own electrical inspectors to check any work requiring a permit. City (or village) electrical inspectors typically inspect all new construction, room additions, basement finishing, etc. The electrician gets the permit and arranges for the inspection. Minor electrical repair, such as replacing an outlet or installing a ceiling fan, is typically not inspected. If in doubt about whether or not an inspection is required, call the inspector’s office.
