ABOUT BUILDING INSPECTIONS
Building inspections are conducted Monday through Thursday from 8 am to 3 pm and alternate Fridays from 8 am to 12 pm (noon) excluding Federal holidays. It is the responsibility of the contractor or property owner to call for inspections at specific times during construction. Inspections help to ensure that each phase of a project is following the approved plan.

Inspectors cannot guarantee specific inspection times as problems may occur in the field with other jobs and emergencies, thus we try and accommodate AM/PM block availability.
Please be aware, permission for the inspector to access the job site for each inspection must be provided by an adult over the age of 18 by the owner or contractor at the site. The job card and set of approved plans must be present in order to perform an inspection. If the project site cannot be accessed or if you do not have the plans and/or job card, please contact the Building Division at 909-864-8732 Extension 232 to cancel the inspection and reschedule.
If a ladder is required for access the Owner or Contractor will need to provide the site with one for the inspection and it must be secured in place.
