1. Where can I find the rules on elevator inspections?
All regulations can be found on the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation's Page.
2. How do I get a Certificate of Compliance?
Once the elevator inspection is completed, the inspector provides the building owner or representative with the inspection report. By signing the report, the owner/representative confirms that any violations have been or will be addressed. Upon submission of the report with the $20/elevator fee, TDLR issues the Certificate of Compliance.
3. How much does an elevator inspection cost?
Rates may differ depending on the inspector's base fee, equipment type, inspection type, and location (hydraulic, traction, escalator, etc.). Get in touch with us to receive a custom quote for the units you need to be inspected.
4. How long does an average elevator repair take?
Repair times can vary depending on the complexity of the issue, but we strive to complete repairs as quickly as possible.
5. How often do elevators need to be inspected?
In order to obtain a Certificate of Compliance, the elevator or related equipment's owner must conduct inspections every 12 months.
6. Does a grace period apply for late inspections?
Unfortunately, there is no grace period for inspections. Inspections must be conducted within a 12-month period and should be completed on or before the anniversary date of the last inspection.
7. How can I extend my elevators lifespan?
Regular maintenance, timely repairs, and adherence to safety guidelines can significantly extend elevator lifespan.
8. How long does it take to get an inspection report?
The inspector must issue the inspection report to the building owner in not more than 5 calendar days.
