Building Inspections

The Cortez Building Department provides inspections for valid permit holders from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday excluding holidays.

Cortez provides for all inspections and for all trades except for electrical. If you need an electrical inspection, please contact Colorado Department of Regulatory Affairs at 303-894-2310.

To schedule an inspection, please call our 24-hour inspection line at 970-564-4071. Our inspection line is checked each morning, once a day at 8:00 a.m. Please be prepared to give your name, call back phone number, permit number (example: B13-0347), construction site address, type of inspection wanted, and the time and date that you would like the inspection.

We try to honor all inspection time requests; however, sometime multiple requests come in for the same time slot. In this event we will schedule the inspections in the order received. A representative will call you if the appointment time can’t be made. Please allow 15 minutes before or after the requested time for our inspector to show up.

You can also request inspections on line by logging onto Citizen Serve.

Please feel free to call our offices at 970-565-3402 if you have questions or comments.
