Outer Banks Building Inspections

Outer Banks building inspectins
Arrange your appointment for your inspection early to maintain your workflow.

Just about any construction, renovation, remodel or addition to your property will require a Building Permit.  In order for your project to be approved, you may possibly need a couple of Outer Banks Building Inspections. Usually there are inspections for both plumbing as well as electrical. Inspections are done at definitive stages as they cannot inspect systems once they are encased in a wall. These are to ensure that your property is safe and put together correctly.

We recommend that you discuss how many inspections your project will require when you obtain your initial building permit. Once your project is ready for an inspection, you can call the Building Inspector to arrange an appointment. Generally speaking, 24 to 48 hours is sufficient to request an inspection, but it’s best to check to see how busy they are at that particular time of year.

Make sure you are doing your homework in the right jurisdiction before you begin. There are 6 incorporated towns on the Outer Banks which have jurisdiction over your Outer Banks building inspections. Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head and Manteo are the incorporated towns.  All other locations fall either in Dare or Currituck County.  Two areas that may seem to be within a town but are actually within the County are Martins Point and Colington Island.
