Building Inspections

Scheduling

iStock_000001292551MediumBuilding Inspections are performed during regular business hours, Monday-Friday, holidays and weekends are excluded.  Inspection dates are next business day if scheduled prior to 3:30 p.m. the business day before.  Inspections called in on Saturday or Sunday will not be scheduled until Tuesday.    (Example:  if you want an inspection on Tuesday, the inspection would need to be scheduled on Monday before 3:30 p.m.)

As a courtesy, a two hour estimated time for the Inspector to arrive can be obtained on-line by searching for your permit or by calling the Building Division.  Estimated times will be available the morning of the inspection between 8 – 9 a.m. Please note that this will be the inspector’s best estimate of their arrival time and could be subject to change without notification. Due to the schedules of the inspectors, requested choices of times are not available.

Please make every attempt to be available the day the inspection is scheduled.  If you cannot be available during the time provided, the inspection may be rescheduled for a later date by calling the Building Division. When calling the Building Division for estimated times or to cancel an inspection, please press “0″ for assistance.

Messages left for Building Inspectors after 9:00 a.m. will be returned the following business day.
