Building Inspections

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 schedule an inspection, the contractor must provide the permit number and job address to the scheduling clerk.  Each contractor and subcontractor is responsible for requesting their own inspections.

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.
