*** PLEASE NOTE ***
Beginning on 4/01/2022, our fees will increase for the first time since 2005. All projects submitted for plan review or inspections requested for after 3/31/2022 will be subject to our new fee schedules
In 2018, the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation (TDLR) instituted new procedures for Registered Accessibility Specialists that require significantly more administrative work for our staff. Furthermore, the costs of inspection travel have increased as well. We have made every effort to keep our costs low, but unfortunately increasing our fees is necessary in order to continue to maintain the exemplary service we strive to provide.
