Did a water intrusion inspection on a 3 x 3 split faced block condo building. Typical problems. But get a load of the issues on the back porch! I could not even believe this.
- Corner posts overly notched. May be just a Chicago thing, but they want no notches, through bolting with, at least, 5/8" bolts and brackets under the beams.
- See this? It was under a landing on the porch.
- They didn’t have long enough joists, so they distered the joists and connected them with screws!
- The metal hangers were a) undersized, b) secured (when they were secured) with screws and c) no screws in the actual joists.
Every day, at least one more WTF moment. :mrgreen:
