According to N.J.A.C. 5:23-2.18(c), inspection requests must be made at least 24 hours in advance.

  1. The owner or other responsible person in charge of work shall notify the enforcing agency, in writing, when the work is ready for any required inspection specified herein or required by the construction official or appropriate subcode official. This notice shall be given at least 24 hours before the time the inspection is desired.   This notice shall represent an attestation on the part of the owner, other than single-family owner-occupants performing their work, or other responsible person in charge of work, that the work has been completed in conformance with the code and is ready for inspection.  The request shall be considered received on the next business day after it is sent if the request is outside of normal business hours.

You will be notified by a reply to your email of the date for the inspection.
