Updated policies regarding City of Loveland residential building inspections will allow homeowners and contractors to conduct inspections via video beginning Monday, May 18.

The “virtual” inspections are part of the City’s continuing effort to provide services while protecting the community and employees from the threat posed by COVID-19.

Those requesting video inspections must be willing to read and comply with specific instructions to properly perform the inspections, available at

To receive the instructions by mail, call 970-962-2505 and leave a message with name and address.

A limited number of in-person inspections are available to residents who are unable to comply with the video inspections and will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis with longer wait times. 

In-home inspections will require residents and/or contractors to be willing to comply with strict instructions including social distancing and wearing masks. Prior to any inspection, the applicant will need to confirm that no one in the residence has any COVID-19 symptoms.

Questions about compliance with the Building Division’s residential inspection policy may be submitted via phone to Lead Building Inspector, Steve Hefling, at 970-962-2508 or via email at
