Who inspects the work?

With your building permit, the Building department will provide information about when and who to call for inspection(s).  Building inspectors will inspect your work several times during the course of construction for things such as footings, framing, insulation, rough-in and mechanical work and building final inspection.  

You will need to contact the Building department to schedule an inspection; no work shall proceed or be covered until the requested inspection has been signed off. An inspection card may be attached to your permits.  You or your contractor should post the card on the site until completion of the final inspection. This card contains important information about the job and is used to record inspections performed.

Contact the Building department to arrange your inspection.
