Building Inspections

 

Please note that inspections cannot be scheduled for the same day.  We require inspections to be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance.  Inspections cannot be made until after a permit has been picked up and paid for.  To schedule an inspection, call 435-755-1650, and give the following information:

 

  1.  The structure address, owner's name, and/or the building permit number.
  2. The type of inspection needed
  3. What time of day that the inspection is desired.

 

All inspection times are approximate.  If you cannot reach us at the phone number listed above, you may try to reach us through the Zoning department line at 435-755-1640.

 

Several inspections are required on most construction. A general rule is to call for an inspection before you cover anything up.  A typical single family residence typically requires the following inspections:

 

 Footings To be made after trenches are excavated. Forms are erected and steel is in place and tied.
 Foundation To be made after forms are erected and steel is in place and tied.
 Underground Plumbing To be made after all plumbing is installed and prior to the covering of any drainage or water pipes and pressure test is on before basement floor is poured.
 Early (Permanent) Power We do not inspect for temporary power.  However, permanent power is inspected for clearance with the local power provider.
 Rough Plumbing To be made after all plumbing is installed and prior to the covering of any drainage or water pipes and pressure test is on.
 Rough Framing To be made after the roof, all framing members, fire block, etc. are in place, and all pipes, vents and electrical wiring are installed.
 Rough Mechanical To be made after flue and ducts are run; furnace is installed and gas lines sized and in place.  Gas pressure must be tested to 20 psi pressure test.
 Rough Electrical To be made after all wiring is in place and before any of it is covered up.
 Final Inspection To be made after building is completed and prior to occupancy.
 Additional Inspections as needed Chimney, Lath, Stucco Certification, etc. may be required.  See your permit for the specific inspections required for your structure.
