For a gas fireplace installation, you will need one Safety Code inspection during the course of your fireplace installation:

  1. A final inspection prior to concealing; framing and venting must be installed

For a solid fuel fireplace installation, you will need two Safety Code inspections during the course of your fireplace installation:

  1. A rough-in inspection before prior to concealing

You will be required to correct all deficiencies. Re-inspection fees or other penalties may apply.
