I just received my permits from Maricopa County and they are digging my footing this week. I have searched high and low but have been unable to determine what inspections I will need to obtain during the building process. On the permit there is a number to call for an inspection and a list of all the inspections they offer, but nowhere does it say what inspections are required. By the way can anyone recommend a good plumber or an electrition?

Welcome to AZ and the O-B forums.

I hate to tell you this , but that list isn't all they offer for inspections, just the ones you need. There usually is a progressive order to the list. Such as: rough plumbing, riser water test, intermediate plumbing, final plumbing. With a similar list for each trade.

If you scan your card and post it here, we can give you greater assistance on schedule and order.

Check some of the Phoenix sub threads here for info on finding an electrician and plumber.

By "card" do you mean the Residential Development Permit 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper the County gave me? Other than the permit, a set of original plans and my site plan, I didn't receive any "card" from County. Did I miss something?

The inspection "card" is the sheet with the list of inspections that they tell you to post on site. When the inspector comes out he may have a history from the office of your inspections but s/he may rely on what you have available to inform them of what may have been passed or failed previously.

Congratulations! Permitting is sometimes the hardest part of building.

Maricopa County inspections can be scheduled on-line.  Here is the link:

velocityhall.com/accela/velohall/index.cfm?CITY=MARICOPA

I believe that they group the inspections into categories:

100 = Foundation Stage

200 =  Rough-in, etc.

In the 100 group, if I remember correctly there is an inspection that you call for after the footings have been dug and steel has been set in the footings prior to the pour.  The inspector will check setbacks at that time.

I think the next inspection is called when the forms for the stem wall are in place. This one falls into a different group -- and results in a surveyor coming out to check your finished floor elevation prior to pouring your stem wall.

Rough plumbing typically comes next, your plumber will need to fill a 10' stack for your drains. The inspector will tap it to make sure it is holding water.  He will also make sure that your underslab copper is pressurized.

When you pass all of the "100" inspections you will be cleared to pour your slab.

You can ask your inspector what inspection to call for next, each time he comes by, as well.

Good Luck with your project.

Hi Dan.  I'm not sure how it works in Maricopa County, but for City of Mesa they gave me a generic sheet listing ALL inspections, not just the ones that I needed.  They provided a number which I called and was able to speak to the inspector supervisor.  He was very helpful and spent 20 minutes describing each inspection and which one I would need.  I was probably lucky to find someone helpful on my first try. 

If you can find out who your inspector  for your area is you should try to contact him.  He will most likely be willing to answer your questions on what inspections you will need.
