The City of Durham contracts with the City of Tualatin for permit inspection services. Inspections are performed Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Contractors or property owners can request an inspection through Tualatin’s Online Permit System or by phone through the inspection voicemail at 503-691-3040. You can request an inspection up to 5:00 pm on the business day prior to the day you want the inspector to come.
By phone, please provide your information in the following order:
- Identify that you are requesting an inspection in the City of DURHAM
- Permit Number
- Site Address
- Date of Inspection Requested (see cutoff times below)
- Type of Inspection Requested
- Contact Name, Phone Number, and Email
- Notes, Lockbox Info, or Special Instructions
Please speak slowly and clearly to ensure all information is relayed accurately to the inspector.
Cell phones tend to cut out while providing information, especially with background noise. Try to request inspections in a quiet place or from a landline.
Frequently, people leave their phone numbers very quickly making them difficult to understand. Please speak slowly and repeat the number so we have the correct contact information.
