Inspections

There will be different inspection procedures depending on the type of permit you applied for.

Regardless of what type of inspection you need, follow the below process for scheduling.

You can either schedule an inspection over the phone or online. Inspection requests must be received by 3:00 P.M. the business day prior to the day you would like the inspection performed.

To schedule over the phone:

  1. Call 707-445-7244.
  2. You will be directed to leave a message. Make sure to leave the following information.
    • Your name
    • Your building permit number
    • The inspection you are requesting (see inspection stages below)
    • Whether you want an A.M. or P.M. inspection (optional)

Next Steps

If you need to meet your inspector at a specific time do the following.

  1. Call 707-445-7245 between 8:30-9:30 on the day of your inspection.
  2. Provide your permit number and request to be forwarded to your inspector.
  3. Coordinate directly with your inspector.

Keep in mind that your inspector will have between 5 and 15 stops a day and will not know exactly how long each stop will take. What this means is it might be difficult for your inspector to promise specific times for inspection and you should plan on making yourself available that day.
