The Building Permit will expire 180 days after it is issued or 180 days after the last inspection. To keep the Permit active, You must show progress every 180 days. Progress can be verified by having a progress inspection.
In addition to the above listed inspections, other inspections may be required, to assure compliance with the Laws enforced by the Weber County Building Inspection Department. If you have any questions concerning an inspection, please contact our office prior to proceeding. As a general rule: If it is covered or concealed, it must be inspected prior to covering.
Reinspection fees may be assessed when work, for which an inspection is scheduled, is not complete or required corrections have not been made. Fees may also be assessed when the Approved Plan is not readily available to the Inspector, when unapproved changes have been made to the plan, or when the building is not accessible to the Inspector. Further inspections will not be made until the fees have been paid.
