We are looking to buy a house and had a home inspector come and comment the soil in the crawl space was wet. He also mentioned the space below the basement subfloor was only about 2 inches high. We are in Colorado and our city follows the following building codes
2015 International Residential Code (IRC)
2015 International Building Code (IBC)
2014 National Electric Code (NEC)
2015 International Plumbing Code (IPC)
2015 International Mechanical Code (IMC)
2015 International Fuel Gas Code (IFGC)
2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC)
2015 International Swimming Pool and Spa Code (ISPSC)
2015 International Existing Building Code (IEBC)
2009 ANSI (As referenced in the 2009 International Building Code)
The house was built in 1985 and I can’t find anything in the current codes that say if a crawl space has to be a certain height so I can begin to look if was also the same when the house was built.
We also had a structural engineer out and mention the area below the house needs to be dried out which we know.
So before we bug the county and city, is there a code for the height of crawl space?
