Please take a close look on the photos of defective foundation in this web site
or the web site
This is a new home just completed last month in Cypress, Texas area. I discovered a long lumber 2x4 (around 2 feet long) buried inside at the brick-leg edge of foundation at the first day the foundation poured on March 14, 2008. I’ve requested the builder disclose me the documents related to this foundation problem and how they fix it but the builder has delined until July 11, 2008, they show me a “foundation inspection report” from a P.E. they hired to inspect the foundation. I believe the builder is hiding something… At the time a P.E. inspected foundation on July 11, 2008, the lumber was not there because it was drilled out and the hole was filled long time ago on May 21, 2008. I don’t think this foundation inspection report could be counted because it doesn’t certified or say anything about the foundation status at the time the lumber was buried inside and drilled out of it. The builder keeps talk around to not admit this is a serious problem of the foundation issues (of course, they will never admit its their fault) :mad:
Could anyone please give me any advice about these foundation problems and the building code violations of the 1st photo and the 2nd photo (unapproval material, mulch mixed in cement and sealed a cut-cable head)? I really appreciate for your kind help & advice!
