​​​Inspection Announcement

The City of Manteca has transitioned to a new online inspection request portal. The previous phone systems and email systems are no longer operational and all inspections are scheduled utilizing our website which can be found here at our online inspection portal. This new system allows for a streamlined and expedited manner in which you can schedule your inspections, even weeks in advance for your convenience. It also allows you to see the status of your inspections, inspection results, dates scheduled, and more. ​

Please note that when scheduling inspections the change of status from “requested” to “scheduled” and the time scheduled is only a representation of the AM or PM window.  We do not schedule specific times for inspections.  AM scheduled inspections are between 8-12 and PM scheduled inspections are anytime between 12-4.

​If you have any questions, please Contact Us.


Inspection Information

All building permits require an inspection conducted by our trained, professional inspectors to review footings, foundation, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, structural frames, insulation, lathe, drywall, and more.

Building inspectors work to ensure construction meets all municipal ordinances and state building codes and are constructed according to the plans approved by the Building Safety Division.

Building inspections generally occur between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm Monday through Friday with the exception being holidays or city closures. A full list of city closure dates can be found here.


Scheduling Process​

Inspections may be scheduled at any time using our website which can be found here. A walkthrough of the inspection scheduling process can also be found here which is a great resource showing the complete process of utilizing the website to schedule inspections, view your permits, and much more.

Please remember that all inspections must be requested no later than 3:30 pm on the business day preceding the inspection date requested. Any inspections requested after 3:30 pm will be scheduled for the second city working day.

​If you have any questions, please Contact Us or if you need assistance scheduling an inspection please call the Building Safety Division at 209-456-8550, and someone will be able to walk you through the process of scheduling online.
