Inspection Request

There are two ways to schedule building and other construction inspections.  After reading this page, click “continue” below to schedule online, or you can use our recorded inspection phone line at (253) 512-2266.

In order to schedule an inspection, you will need to provide certain information for staff to process your request. All questions require responses in order to process the inspection request. If you don’t respond to all of the questions, your inspection request cannot be processed. All inspection requests received by 4:00 pm Monday through Friday will automatically be scheduled for the following business day.

Building inspectors are available from 8 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday. Please make sure that your project is ready for inspection and that all the appropriate materials (i.e. plans and inspection cards) are available for the inspector. A re-inspection fee of $53.00 may be charged if the inspector finds that the work was not ready for inspection. If you need assistance, please call the Permit Counter at (253) 512-2261.
