Building Inspections

Responsibilities & Services

The Building Inspections Department is responsible for overseeing the building permit and inspection process for all residential and commercial construction, from new construction to remodeling. The Building Inspections Department also handles zoning violation complaints, Hoover sewer credits, and alarm permit issuance.

Inspection Process

The Hoover Municipal Code requires that the Building Inspections Department inspect and approve all construction work performed within the City of Hoover.

Please call our office during regular business hours to schedule inspections at 205-444-7522. The Building Inspections Department requests at least 24 and preferably 48 hours notice for all inspections. In order to expedite the scheduling request, please provide the permit number and job address to the scheduling clerk when inspections are requested.

A qualified City of Hoover inspector will be dispatched to the appropriate job site at the scheduled time. The inspector will document the approval or disapproval of the work performed and, if disapproved, will note the area(s) of deficiency.
