Do I need inspections? How do I set them up?

When the work begins, the Village will inspect each major phase of construction. It is the responsibility of the person doing the work to schedule inspections at least 24 hours in advance; the Building Division does not automatically schedule inspections. Information about inspections will be attached to your building permit and will be geared to your specific project.

To schedule an inspection please call us at (630) 773-5568 and have ready your permit number and type of inspection needed. Inspections received after 3:00 p.m. will be processed the following day. 

Plans must be on-site. If plans are not on-site, a re-inspection fee will be imposed. If during the inspection, the inspector finds that some of the work does not meet minimum code requirements or deviate from the approved plan, the inspector will provide a written explanation of the corrections that must be made to bring the work up to acceptable standards.
