Client wanted an inspector to look at his new home. Client stated that the neighbors have had issues with the builder and some have resorted to potentially sueing the builder for repairs.
I asked the client what some of the issues where that they are concerned about.
Our neighbors inspector told them that the ground drains toward the house. the inspector also said that the sealer on the driveway did not penetrate deep enough allowing the driveway to crack. Also some issues with the roof.
So here is my question:
Have you heard of anything about sealer needing to penetrate the concrete to a certain depth, if so how would you go about testing something like that.
I have never heard of this before. I was formerly employed by a concrete company for just over 2 years and have personally sealed many driveways. I wanted to tell my clients that the other inspectors claims about the neighbors drive was BS. I wanted to pose the question here first as there is always some wierd bit of information that you just might not know about.
