Inspection Requests

In order to schedule an inspection, please do so BEFORE 2:30 p.m. the day before you want your inspection. Your inspection will be scheduled for the next regular business day. If you email us on a holiday or weekend, your inspection will not be conducted until the second business day after the holiday or weekend.

Please be aware that by 7:30 am on the day of your inspection all work must be accessible and ready for inspection or a re-inspection fee will be charged.  This includes access to the inspection site and providing a ladder, if necessary. Due to fluctuations with inspections, A.M. and P.M. inspection requests cannot be scheduled. Permit, plans and other forms must be made available for the inspector at the time of inspection.  If you need to cancel your inspection, you must contact the Inspector BEFORE he arrives at your site, or a re-inspection fee will be charged. 

We will need the following information in order to properly schedule your inspection:

Permit/Application number.  An example would be:  14-1967
Street address and (if applicable) Suite Number
Type of inspection needed
A contact name and phone number (This is important!)
The name of your Inspector if you know it
Also, if Smoke Detectors or Carbon Monoxide Detectors are required, have they been installed?

As long as your request is submitted before 2:30 p.m., your inspection will automatically be scheduled for the next business day. We will not call or email you to confirm your inspection.

If you need to cancel an inspection, or if you have any questions, please contact us at 351-3555 between 8 am and 4:30 p.m. or email us at buildingpermitcounter@folsom.ca.us

To get an estimate of what time your Inspector will arrive, please visit our web site at www.folsom.ca.us after 8 a.m. and click on “On-line Services” at the top right portion of the page. Your Inspector’s name and phone number will be available if you need to contact him.

If you are a homeowner and will be waiting for the Inspector, you may call him after 8 A.M. the morning of your inspection and he will try to give you an approximate arrival time.

Contractors: Due the amount of calls the Inspectors receive each day, please refrain from calling your inspector except in extreme instances.
