Construction inspections

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 or use our online form.

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

Inspection requests must be received by 4:00 p.m. on the business day prior to the inspection. Monday inspections must be requested by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, and inspections cannot be scheduled or completed on holidays.

Please leave the address, type of inspection requested, and the permit number with your message. If this information is not provided, or is unclear, the inspection cannot be scheduled.

Property Maintenance Inspection

The City's Property Maintenance Code provides for minimum standards to protect life, health, property and public welfare by regulating the use, occupancy, location and maintenance of all residential buildings. We respond to complaints and observations of possible property maintenance code violations.
