Exterior Home Maintenance Program & Assistance Programs

The City of Mayfield Height's Building Department has a Home Maintenance Program that entails the inspection of the exterior of the house and surrounding yard. The inspections begin in the spring and are conducted by Building Department Inspectors. The inspectors do not need entry to your residence nor for you to be at home. Inspectors will attempt to make their inspection as brief as possible but will take time to discuss any concerns you may have. Inspectors carry identification and will be happy to present it upon request. Common areas the inspectors will look at are:

  • Roof
  • Chimney
  • Gutters & Downspouts
  • Walls, Porches, Doors, & Steps
  • Foundations
  • Paint
  • Garage, Sheds, & Accessory
  • Concrete
  • Fences
  • Yard Area

If violations are identified, a notice will be mailed to you along with a compliance date for completion. There are home improvement resources for homeowners who need assistance in doing repairs. See the resources below for more information.
