It shall be the duty of the permit holder or their agent to notify the building official that such work is ready for inspection. It shall be the duty of the person requesting any inspections required by the code to provide access to and means for inspection of such work.
A construction code official shall at the time of final inspection file an inspection report that indicates compliance with the Uniform Construction Code and issue a “Certificate of Occupancy” or a “Certificate of Compliance.” Failure to schedule inspections when required may result in the delay or NON-ISSUANCE of this Certificate. This Certificate may be required by your Mortgage Company, Bank or Insurer and may also be requested by a purchaser’s Mortgage Company or insurer in the event of the sale of the structure.
In the event that construction activities have begun prior to the issuance of a permit, the applicant is subject to special fees, as determined by the Building Code Official.
Inspection Scheduling Policy
ALL inspections require a MINIMUM of 24 hours notice (48 hours preferred).
We will schedule your inspection as soon as possible, while taking into account inspections already scheduled.
A two (2) hour window will only be given for:
- Footers (please advise us of your actual pour time when scheduling).
- Other concrete pours (advise us of actual pour time).
- Electrical inspections (ONLY when the power company is scheduled to energize at a specific time).
- When the inspector needs to enter an owner-occupied portion of the project to perform the inspection (only if conducting the inspection when the contractor cannot be present).
ALL other inspections will be performed between 8:00 am and 2:30 pm, at a time that coordinates with all other scheduled inspections for that day.
It is easier to cancel a scheduled inspection than to schedule one on short notice – if you think you will be ready, please call and get your job on the day’s schedule! If you do need to cancel an inspection, please call our office as soon as possible.
Please do not ask staff or inspectors to make exceptions to this policy.
Approved Electrical Inspectors
If your project includes electric service additions or modifications, an electrical inspection is required to complete the project. All CK-COG residential and commercial building permits include an electrical inspection expense as part of the permit fee.
CK-COG has both residential electrical inspectors and commercial electrical inspectors, or you may hire one of the approved third-party electrical inspectors listed to complete the electrical inspection portion of the building inspection process. It is not mandatory that homeowners or contractors use the electrical inspection services of the CK-COG; however third-party agencies will have their own fee schedule for inspections that are in addition to the basic building permit fee.
