  • INSPECTIONS

    Scheduling Inspections

    When you receive your building permit, you will be given a handout describing the city's basic code and inspection requirements.

    You may schedule inspections by calling (847) 931-5920 Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Inspections must be requested at least 24 hours in advance to allow for proper scheduling.

    Meeting the Requirements

    If an inspector finds that some work does not meet the code requirements, you will be advised to make the corrections and ask for a re-inspection.

    Rough and final inspections will assure you that the work has met the city requirements. This is for your protection and for the safety of all residents.
