Building Inspections

Inspections are carried out during and upon completion of construction. The Building Inspector looks for different things depending on the type of inspection.

Book an inspection

It is the responsibility of the applicant/builder to call and book appointments for the required inspections. To book an appointment, contact the Building Department at least 24 hours in advance.

Building inspection guides

A series of information guides is available below. These guides were originally prepared by the City of Markham but have been customized, with permission, for the Town of Essex.

The guides listed below do not form an exhaustive list of possible inspections. Please contact the Building Department to find out more about which inspections your project will require.
