First post here. I will be the homeowner of a new tract home in Central NY (Manlius). When the foundation subcontractor built the block foundation they set the anchor bolts too deep in the concrete. As a result the framer could not get nuts and washers on those bolts - I would say about 60% of them.
The house is almost completed and they were getting ready to install sheetrock in the finished portion of the basement when I pointed out (3rd or 4th time) that this was a problem. The building inspector also flagged it back in the fall.
I am confidant that the builder will make the sub fix it but my question is - how do I want it fixed? I think IRC 403.1.6 would apply. It calls for 1/2" bolts 7" deep in the concrete block, every 6’ with one at each end.
These are hollow block that had concrete poured in them every so many feet. Do I want them to drill through the 2x6 into that poured section and install a bolt? Either an expanding type or epoxy?
Any advice would be appreciated.
