Building Inspections

Scheduling a Building Inspection
Instructions for requesting inspections are located on the back of your building permit on the inspection record card, which lists the required inspection areas. Work shall not be concealed prior to obtaining an inspection. Be certain to obtain all inspections necessary to your project, listed on the inspection record card.

To schedule a building inspection, call the Inspection Request Line at (303) 234-5933 or send your request through our online Inspection Request Form
 

Guidelines

  • Inspections are required in some form for all building permits.  The inspection record posted on the job will have a list of required inspections.  This is a general record so only inspections that would apply to your specific project would be required.
  • Inspections requested prior to 11:59 pm on that business day will be performed the following business day. Be sure to anticipate the need for inspections to prevent delays.
  • Requests for inspection time windows will be taken by email only. Please email time requests to: insptimerequest@ci.wheatridge.co.us by 8:00a.m., the day of the inspection, with the property address listed in the subject line of the email. Inspection time windows will not be provided if sent after 8:00a.m., or if inspection request is not made by 11:59p.m. the day before.  See top of page if you haven't scheduled your inspection.
  • Inspection 2-hour windows are a courtesy, and not guaranteed.  AM/PM requests will no longer be taken.
  • If a requested inspection cannot be performed due to inclement weather, the contractor and/or property owner are responsible for canceling the requested inspection no later than 8 a.m. on the day of inspection. If an inspector arrives to perform a requested inspection that cannot be conducted and has not been canceled, a re-inspection fee of $60 will be assessed and will be required to be paid prior to the next inspection.
  • Inspections will not be performed on subcontracted work done by an unlicensed subcontractor.  Discovery of unlicensed contractors may result in work stoppages and a municipal summons.
  • Final inspections are the last step in the inspection process, and approval of the final inspections is your confirmation that the work has been satisfactorily completed according to the building code.
Please Note: Prior to the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy or Completion, all requirements of the Planning, Engineering, Fire and Health Departments are required to be met.
