Experience is important when determining pay for Building Code Inspectors. Standard salaries begin at $39K and can reach $44K after five to 10 years. Compensation is $49,713 after 10 to 20 years. After two decades in the field, Building Code Inspectors continue to experience steady salary growth, and typical compensation averages $59K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up about a third of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise 1 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 17 percent. Most employees in this workforce have between one and nine years of experience; more than half of those surveyed fall within this distribution.
