Use this form for all work except plumbing. There is a place to attach pictures and pdf's.
Use this form for plumbing work.  (This is the state plumbing affidavit form.) In the rare case the inspector has asked for pictures or other documentation, you will need to use the Construction Affidavit Form as the Plumbing Form does not allow attachments.   


Please allow two full business days for review and processing of an affidavit prior to requesting any following inspections. (Meaning if you are trying to schedule a final but have outstanding violations that need to be cleared with an affidavit you must wait two business days for the affidavit to get processed before scheduling the final.  If the applicant receives an inspection report approving the affidavit prior to that, then an inspection can be requested at that time.) 

What is an AFFIDAVIT?

An affidavit is a legal document attesting to work that was done.  
All Croix Inspections has a very specific protocol regarding the use of affidavits:
First and foremost, an affidavit may only be provided if requested by the inspector.  If work is concealed without an inspection, the applicant may be asked to uncover the work.
Affidavits are only used for certain types of inspections for specific types of projects and with subcontractors who have a past history of code-approved inspections over multiple projects for multiple general contractors.  
The WI building code allows for two business days from the point a project is ready for inspection for the inspection to take place.  Some inspections (footings, foundation, draintile, poly underslab, and UG plumbing) are required just prior to cement pours.  In those cases the sub-contractor has to coordinate not only the inspection, but also the pump truck and the cement, as well as the crew to do the work.   If the situation warrants it, meaning All Croix knows the subcontractor and they have a proven track record of approved inspections, the inspection type is an underslab poly, draintile, or UG plumbing, and All Croix won’t be in that area at the requested time (i.e. the  will be ready at 8 am for inspection, have mud lined up for 10 am and our route puts us in that vicinity at 3 pm) we may request an affidavit.
Given that an inspection agency has two entire business days to do the inspection from the time it is ready to be inspected, it is certainly well within the timeline dictated by code to have an inspection in the late afternoon for a project that will be ready in the morning; however,  if the inspection meets  our criteria, to benefit the contractor’s timeline, we may request an affidavit.  
Other cases where affidavits are requested are for on-site inspections that require corrections.  If the correction is a minor correction, we may feel that it is unnecessary to hold up the job for a two day reinspection.   This again, depends on the type of inspection, the type of project, and the subcontractor’s record of inspections.  
An affidavit is treated just like an inspection as far as administration goes.  It is reviewed by an inspector within two business days  (a job can continue prior to affidavit reviewal as it is on the contractor’s own recognizance that the work was completed to code) but it is still reviewed in the office and attached to the permit history of inspections.   If affidavits are being submitted without inspection requests, that is noted in the contractor file.
However, if a contractor has said they prefer onsite inspections, we honor that and will be on-site for an inspection within two business days of the project being ready for inspection.
