Schedule an Inspection

All construction must be inspected before it is covered. Please ask your building inspector, at time of permit issuance, what inspections are needed for your project. 

24 HOUR INSPECTION REQUEST LINE 
(415) 899-8240
The Building Division strives to provide next-day inspections, if possible. Occasionally, heavy inspection loads prevent next day inspections. However, you may call for inspections up to five working days in advance.  To schedule, reschedule, or cancel an inspection, you must call the automated City of Novato Building Inspection Hotline. The next available day will be offered first, up to five days in advance.

 View detailed inspection request instructions & codes.

 
The system will not permit inspections to be scheduled on City non-working days  and holidays, or if the inspection workload is heavy. Otherwise, you will be offered the next business day. If you have a question or would like to speak with your building inspector, prior to an inspection, please see the Inspection Districts below for contact information.

 

Authorized Construction Hours:

• Monday through Friday – 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
• Saturdays – 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
• No Construction on Sundays or Official Federal Holidays
