BUILD-REQUEST: Building Inspections

After a permit has been purchased, related inspections are provided upon request.  Our department has separate inspectors for structural, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC work. 

How much does an inspection cost?

The inspection fee is included within the permit purchase.

The fee schedule can be found here.

Who is eligible to request an inspection?

The contractors that are performing the permitted work are eligible to get inspections, once a permit has been purchased through the Building Department.

When are inspections provided?

Inspections should be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance.  Final inspections, however, should be scheduled at least 2 days in advance.

Inspection requests should be called in at 574-235-9554.

Inspections are scheduled directly with each individual inspector.  All inspectors are in the office 7:30-9 am and 3:30-4 pm.

How can I request an inspection?

Call the Building Department at 574-235-9554 from 7:30-9am or 3:30-4pm. 
You will need to know the township of the property and the permit number, which are both located on the permit.
