Inspections

Along with plan review, the inspection program of a project assures compliance with the building codes, which is a minimum standard. The one thing we hear in our industry is that an inspector didn’t show or is not consistent in the enforcement of the codes. This company is dedicated to be on time for all of the inspections and if an inspector is late, a phone call will be made to the contractor to let them know. Also, with code enforcement, the building official has a responsibility to make sure that the codes are being enforced consistently to all. 

Here is an inspection list which Inspection Services of Central Minnesota, Inc. performs for all permit applications. When you receive your inspection card, all of the required inspections will be marked on that card for the project being constructed.
