Construction Inspection



Required inspections are performed at various stages of the construction process as outlined in the International Codes.

A list of the required inspections is also included in your permit. But, as a general rule, an inspection is required prior to covering up any work regulated by the codes.


To request an inspection, call the 24-hour request line at (970) 350-9840. The deadline for inspection requests is 4:00 p.m., the day prior to the inspection being scheduled. For example, before 4:00 p.m. Wednesday for a Thursday inspection. Before 4:00 p.m. Friday for a Monday inspection. Before 4:00 p.m. the last business day prior to a holiday, for an inspection the next business day after the holiday.


Please leave the address, type of inspection requested, and the permit number with your message. If this information is not provided, or we are unable to understand it, because of bad cell phone reception for example, the inspection cannot be scheduled.

We cannot schedule, or guarantee, a specific time for an inspection. However, we will try our best to make arrangements to inspect a project when access is provided.

Inspections are typically conducted between 7:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday.
