On minor residential projects, such as patios, decks, re-roofs and solar systems, where the work to be inspected does not require the inspector to enter the home or garage, the inspections can be performed without the contractor or home owner present. Be sure to allow access to the inspection area and make sure any dogs or animals are secured. If a ladder is required for the inspection, have one available for the Inspector to use. Also, please leave approved plans, permit, job card and any forms pertaining to your project available for the Inspector.
On larger projects that require access to the building or inside the home we recommend that the contractor, home owner, or someone 18 years of age of older be present.
