To schedule an inspection, call (262) 797-2445 during normal business hours. Inspections must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. Certain inspections, such as those for furnaces, water heaters, and air conditioners, can be scheduled further in advance to accommodate the property owner. If you miss your inspection, the inspector will leave a door tag on your front door.

 Please check with City Staff for specific inspection requirements.

  • There is someone at the residence that is 18 years of age or older
  • Please secure your pet indoors in a safe location
