[FONT=Verdana]Check out these photos. This is a one year old, two story house. In one room alone there over 60 patched nail pops. There is excessive nail pops in every room. There are many areas where the gypsum board seams split and needed to be repaired. The caulking throughout the interior of the home has contracted, leaving gaps between the joints where moldings meet, and where the baseboard moldings meet the walls. The hardwood flooring has lots of gaps in between the planks.
There is no visible evidence of water intrusion and the subflooring/crawlsapce is dry. The homeowner just had his HVAC system serviced and the professional told him his HVAC systems (one for upstairs/one for downstairs) were undersized. The home owner says in the winter and summer he runs his heat/air continuously; the rooms never reach the temperature set on the thermostat. Can all of the nail pops, seam splitting, caulk contraction, and floor gaps be explained by an undersized HVAC system?? Thanks in advance.
