Building Inspections

From the Desk of the Chief Building Official:
With the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, the following procedures have been implemented:

Update: If the GC or person requesting the inspection is sick or showing any symptoms of being sick, a replacement will need to be on-site.  The inspection will be terminated if the person on-site for the inspection is showing any symptoms.

All inspections except boiler inspections are being resumed. Occupied homes will not be entered at the inspector's discretion. Other methods will be used to complete the inspection at the inspector's discretion.

Exterior inspections, non-occupied and new construction projects will continue to be inspected.

We will not be entering occupied homes to conduct inspections, but will implement other methods of inspection. An inspector will reach out to the requestor the day of inspection.

Proof of code compliance will be asked of the homeowner or contractor via pictures, face-time, or other means as deemed acceptable by the building official, if feasible.

We appreciate your patience during this time.

  • 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.
  • Inspectors do not carry ladders. Inspections needing a ladder to be conducted, must have a ladder set up and secured prior to arrival of the inspector.
  • 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.
