New Homeowner Guidelines for the Inspection Process

Davidson County residents who build their own home will work closely with the Codes Department. Throughout the home building process, our inspection personnel review plans and make numerous field inspections, all to ensure that your home is being constructed in a safe manner.

The Inspection Division works to protect the health and safety of its citizens by enforcing the Building, Plumbing, Electrical, Energy, and Gas/Mechanical Codes and all City Ordinances. If during the construction of your home, you feel that codes are being violated or you think that there is an item not in compliance, please call the appropriate Inspector listed on this brochure for assistance. However, if the problem involves the decorative appearance of your house or a contractual issue, please call your general contractor.
