How do I schedule a building inspection?

Please contact the Building Department at (775)738-6816 extension 208 or 209 to request an inspection. Inspection requests must be made the business day before inspection is needed by 4:00 pm.

Any request made after 4:00 pm will be scheduled the following business day or a same day inspection fee of $47.00.

Same day inspections must be requested and paid for by 10:00 am and are pending on availability that day.

The following information is mandatory when calling in an inspection:
Name and Phone Number
The permit number
The address of the project
The type of inspection requested
The day inspection is requested

Inspections will be scheduled between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm.  

Due to the volume of inspections and travel we are unable to schedule specific times or accommodate am/pm inspection requests.

Do I need a permit to replace my hot water heater or furnace?    
Yes.  Insurance companies like to see that a permit was obtained if either the hot water heater or furnance may have been a cause of a claim.
