Permits expire after 180 days if no inspections have been made. In order for the project to be complete, it must pass final inspection. If a permit expires before final inspection, the project is in violation of city codes. If this is your case, call 770-719-4062. We'll help you to reactivate the permit or apply for another with as little inconvenience as possible. Our interest is in seeing your project complete and safe, including the final inspection.
