When an event occurs that affects the environmental conditions of an occupied space, that event is classified in need of an emergency repair. The replacement of a furnace, water heater or sewer line are examples of emergency repairs.
Should an event occur on your property that requires emergency repair service, a building permit for work performed must be applied for by a contractor licensed in the State of Texas before the end of the next business day. An inspection will then be scheduled for the work performed. At the time of inspection, access to the property must be provided and all emergency repair work must remain accessible and uncovered.
