Why are some inspections performed in groups?
Rough and final inspections are typically performed once all the trades have completed their work. This assures that one trade does not damage another’s work – such as a plumber cutting through a framing stud to make an installation. It also allows the owner or general contractor to look over the project in its entirety and address any concerns before receiving a rejected inspection.
