Building Inspections

Inspection Record Card
Instructions for requesting inspections are located on the back of your building permit on the inspection record card, which lists the required inspection areas. Work shall not be concealed prior to obtaining an inspection. Be certain to obtain all inspections listed on the inspection record card.

To schedule an inspection, call the Inspection Request Line at (303) 234-5933 or send your request through our online Inspection Request Form.

Effective December 1, 2014 mid-roof inspections are required for asphalt roof coverings.

  • Inspections requested prior to 11:59 pm on that business day are performed the following business day. Be sure to anticipate the need for inspections to prevent delays.
  • A 2-hour window time frame may be provided for inspections if requested during the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. This is not available for Planning or Public Works inspections. A specific 2-hour window time frame is not guaranteed as inspection windows are scheduled in a manner that insures that inspectors are able to fully complete their daily inspection load. Inspection time windows will not be provided after 8:00 a.m.
  • 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 8:00 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.
  • No inspections will be performed on subcontracted work done by an unlicensed subcontractor. Discovery of unlicensed contractors may result in work stoppages.
  • 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.
