I would like to ask about the following for a Ryan home built in 2004.
Some pertain to electrical but some are for other areas. This area propably gets the most views so I thought I would post here.
- The front GFCI had a waterproof cover but the back just had the metal cover. What year was the bubble cover required?
- The interior cover of the air conditioner disconnect box was missing. Is it require to have a interior cover? I think so as the wire and terminals can be contacted.
- Is a gas water heater required to have a bonding wire when the home is done in CPVC supply. Also why are some heaters bonded with just the water line and some with gas.
- There where no H clips installed at the sheathing and Ryan homes says they seal the house attic so the home owners can not access. I find this to be unusual and noted to inquire with the builder.(I used the picture That GB had in the roofing course)
- The sump or sanitary was sealed in the basement. How do you change the pump or test the pump as the owner? (See picture)
- When did they start requiring that the condenstae to the drain be selaed?
- What is the correct distance for the gutters to slope to the downspout?
There was evidence of ponding & debris. Only sloped like a inch for about 20 feet. (See picture)
- The owner had to tear off the exterior bath vent as birds where infestaing the ducts. Are the exterior vents supposed to have screens or gaurds.(See picture)
Any comments on the stair repairs? (See pictures)
Thanks for answering my questions.
Have a great holiday.
