Is any one else finding the 1 x 4 & 2 x 4 wood form braces embedded in the concretre foundations of residential homes ?
I am seeing this a lot in my area, Surrey, & Vancouver areas of British Columbia.
I am writting this up in my reports as incorrect due to the future probability of moisture weeping into structural framing components.
Insect infestations & habitation.
When I was in construction we never left wood embedded in the concrete foundation, any where. Some times we even used a chain and a back hoe to pull stuck wood framing out.
