Building Inspections


The purpose of the Inspections Division is to enforce minimum building standards designed to protect public health, safety and general welfare. This goal of protecting the public interest is achieved by regulating the design, construction, occupancy and use of all buildings and structures.

The Inspections Division has created a Before You Build Checklist (PDF) to help make the plan review and permitting process as smooth as possible. 

The 2015 Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code (USBC) is effective September 4, 2019.

Schedule a Building Inspection

Inspection requests taken before 10 am will be performed the same day if at all possible. Any requests made after 10 am will be scheduled for the following day.

You may call 434-352-8183 to schedule an inspection or email the inspection request.

If you request by email, a confirmation email will be sent once the request is scheduled. If you do not get a confirmation, your inspection request was not received.
