Napa and Vallejo areas, Yellow and Red Tags Explained

Napa and Vallejo Masonry Repair

Mike’s Mobile Screen & Chimney Service is helping the people of Napa and Vallejo areas navigate their way through the process of City inspections, yellow tags and red tags. This blog is to tell you all about the process and explain everything.

City Inspections:

Mike’s Mobile has a California State Contractor’s License with the CSLB. Our technicians will easily navigate through this process and get a Permit for your home and the work to be done.

City Inspectors come to inspect the work at key points in the Demolition/Construction.

Once the work is complete there will be a final inspection. At this time the city will remove the color coded tag from you door.

Yellow Tag

A yellow tag means “cautionary.” Property owners can access and clean their buildings, and once clean can contact the City for re-inspection. Call 707-258-7829 to request a re-inspection.

Red Tag

A red tag means the building structure has been damaged and is not safe to enter. Please do not enter your building. You must hire a qualified, licensed engineer to inspect the property and prepare a written assessment. The City will post a list of qualified engineers from the region on its website at, or you may already have one to work with. Submit the assessment report to the City’s Building Department at 1600 First Street, beginning Tuesday, August 26th. If the report indicates the building is safe to access and occupy, the City will upgrade the red tag to a yellow tag, and then you must follow the steps described above for a yellow tag. If the report indicates the building is not safe to access and occupy, the report will include recommendations for structural modifications. The Building Division will work with the owner on the best course of action.
