I was asked something today by a buyer that left me looking for the reference for 2 issues.
House was built in about 1999. Hardcoat Stucco
#1 … As Inspectors we quite frequently are told that for something to meet code it basically has to meet the manufacturers specifications & guidelines.
#2 … The actual word KICKOUT FLASHING was not used in code books until just the last few years, BUT manufacturer specifications and guidelines have called for these for MANY years.
Today I had a buyer ask me where #1 is found in the code books AND for #2 did I have anything showing a reference OR manufacturers guidelines or installation specs from about 20 yrs ago.
Think hes arguing things with seller.
I could not find the info … ANYBODY got either #1 or #2
