Building Safety Division
As Windham Building Inspector, I review and issue permits, conduct inspections, and work with the general public and local developers to ensure that all projects adhere to both town regulations and the Building Codes adopted by the State of New Hampshire.
Some items that are within the Inspector's purview include residential and commercial structures including:
- Electrical Permits
- Plumbing Permits
Building Inspection Process
Inspections are done daily, except during severe weather, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and require at least a 24 hour advance notice. To schedule an inspection please call the Community Development Department at 603-432-3806. In order to schedule an inspection we will need the address, permit number, and the Map, Block and Lot number. The building inspector will not enter an occupied home to do an inspection unless someone is onsite.
Requests for Certificates of Occupancy
Requests for Certificates of Occupancy (COs) need 5 days to properly process the paperwork and to ensure all information has been received by the Department and all inspections have been completed.
