Building Inspection

All new construction, additions, basement finishes, remodeling, siding, re-roofs, window replacement, water heater replacement and furnace replacement require a building permit and building inspections.

A building permit and inspections means that your home or commercial building:

  • Meets standards for safety
  • Ensures your structure was built according to the approved plans
  • Provides proof to insurance agencies that the work was done with a permit and safety requirements were met.

Building inspections occur between 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday. Inspections requests may be submitted online between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. or until the calendar is filled and must be online a minimum of 24 hours in advance. To schedule an inspection you must have the permit number, address, and the type of inspection you are requesting. We ask that the general contractor on record schedule all inspections. 


 NOTE: All electrical & gas clearance inspection requests must have Rocky Mountain and/or Dominion Energy's work order number included in the notes or your inspections can not be scheduled. Thank you! *
