Permits & Inspections
It’s critical to have an electrical problem in your business or home rectified as soon as possible by a professional electrician. It’s crucial because you can rest assured that a licensed electrician will take the necessary measures to obtain the necessary local permits and will be able to schedule an inspection to ensure that the work is completed according to code. When it comes to selling your property, this is especially true. When it comes time to sell, you want to make sure that all of the work has been completed and that the house will pass a safety inspection. Almost all electrical work performed on your home or company involves a permit and inspection by a city inspector. It could be dangerous if the electrical work is not up to code or is installed incorrectly. Bad electrical work can cause your home to burn down or cause damage or death, which is why California has strict standards and measurements in place to ensure that all electricians follow the current requirements and have their work inspected by building and safety officials.
When Do I Need An Electrical Permit?
Even simple tasks such as fixing a faulty outlet or installing a light fixture necessitate the use of a permit. Building and safety, on the other hand, do not really check or enforce most tiny adjustments. It’s typically utilized for larger projects like replacing your service panel or adding a new dedicated circuit for an appliance or electric vehicle charger.
When Does The Inspector Come to Give Approval?
If you’re working on a larger project, such as a house addition, the inspector will visit you numerous times throughout the process. When conducting a smaller job, such as installing a dedicated circuit for an EV charger, the inspector will arrive after the work is completed to ensure that everything is in order. In either case, the city will provide you a time frame for when they will arrive on the day of the inspection. Always ensure sure the inspector has access to all electrical-related materials. Plot sheets or other documents are sometimes among the items. MH Electric has extensive experience obtaining permits and collaborating with city inspectors.
