Inspections Department Businesses

Inspections Department

The City of Martinsville’s Inspections staff is charged with the enforcement of the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code in it’s most current edition. There is a free read only version here: Building Code

Permits are issued based on what work is being done, not who is doing the work. More information on what requires a permit can be found at Permit Information

While we can not recommend or endorse any specific contractors, our office can provide you a list of contractors that have obtained permits recently. We do verify contractors have the proper licensing and insurance to obtain permits. Contact Tammy Davis for that list at (276) 403-5173 or Email .

The Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulations handles all contractor licensing and complaints. Please take time to look up any contractors prior to signing a contract for any work to be done on your building:  Contractor Information


Please consider the information found on the Resiliency Resources Page for your next project.
