Did inspection of a new construction two story home. Slab foundation, brick veneer on front, hardi-board on sides, asphalt shingle roof on LP Foil TechShield.
There was a chemical sort of odor present in the second floor area. The odor was stronger in the attic when the scuttle was opened.
I thought at first it was the new carpet, but the potential buyer said the odor had been present before the carpet was laid several weeks earlier. The walls were finished with drywall, textured, and painted, with carpet on floor.
Any ideas what testing could be done?
She had talked to a toxicologist person, but the builder wouldn’t pay for it, so it didn’t happen.
Would any of the city departments handle this sort of problem? :weird:
