Inspections

As work progresses, it must be inspected by Village staff to ensure that it complies with the approved permit plans and all code regulations. Required inspections for your project will be listed on the permit placard. To schedule an inspection, call the Permitting Division at 630-834-8505, at least 24 hours before the time you want your inspection. Please have your permit number handy, since it is necessary to request an inspection.

Fee
Prior to calling for an inspection, please make sure the work for which you are requesting an inspection has been completed. A $50 re-inspection fee is charged for each failed inspection. This includes those projects which are not ready when the inspector arrives.

Inspection Types
The Permitting Division require inspections for several projects, including:

  • Electrical
  • Footings and piers
  • Insulation
  • Plumbing
  • Pre-pours concrete, asphalt, and paver
  • Rough framing
  • Water and sewer
Inspector Assistance
If you are encountering problems, need advice or specific information, or are unsure as to how to proceed, please contact the Permitting Division. All of the Village inspectors are trained, certified professionals in their field. While they cannot design your project, they are more than willing to assist you in completing the job as quickly and easily as possible. If it is necessary to have an inspector stop by your project for assistance, please let Village staff know when you call.

For your own protection, you may wish to have the final inspection completed and approved by the Permitting Division prior to making the final payment to your contractors. Refundable bonds will not be returned until all final inspections have been approved.
