I did take a picture of this and told them to do this, but of course they are calling on me for the final walk through
the blue is what the the builder wrote to them in an email.
I noticed and wrote in the inspection report that I had to type up cause there were TOO many issues for the report on the spot, there was an extra vent hood located near the furnace and I purposely left this on the hot water heater so they could see what I was talking about, so they made some adjustments to the hood and I suppose that it did not fit correctly and then used this bendable, flue peice approx 2-1/2 ft of it. and I have only seen this used 1 other time for the furnace flue and they replaced it in Baltimore county?
[FONT=Arial] #2 Flue from the HWH is correct and to the required building code. The house has been final inspected by WSSC and Pg County. The use and occupancy permit is the documentation for this.[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]For this below I noted that there was moisture present on the floor, per moisture meter, and the buyers as well explained per the 1st time in the home, they noticed the carpet pulled back and heavy duty fans drying the carpet, the moisture was found in that area as well. Each house surrounding this house had a sump pump and the house next door on the corner slopes, swales down towards this house.[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]#1 Already spoke directly to Mr. Walters regarding this issue. No sump pump in a walkout basement and there is NO standing water in the basement.[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]Once again, all other items on the home inspection report will be addressed/ corrected as requested with the exception of the above items that are in compliance with Ryan Homes standards as well as local jurisdictional standards.
what do you think??
