Building Department

The Building Department serves to protect the health, safety and welfare of the public and to enhance the general quality of life through enforcement of the City of Sheffield Lake ordinances. The Department is certified by the Ohio Board of Building Standards.

We do have a POS (Point of Sale) inspection for all transferred properties. Sidewalks must be installed and/or in good condition as part of the POS inspection. If sidewalks are needed, money is to be escrowed with the City of Sheffield Lake.

All new or altered projects and rental properties require permits and inspections. All Contractors must be registered with the Building Department. Any additional questions will be answered by Building Inspector Jon Wiblin at (440)949-5767 or by fax (440)949-6331.
