I am a newer inspector and will be inspecting my first new construction home and I am trying to prepare. The client sent me a picture of the home and I noticed that the down spouts don’t terminate underground as I have seen in many new constructions. They also don’t appear to slope away from the house (see pic).
I plan on at least noting the downspouts should terminate and extend away from the home, but is it a code requirement for new construction that they terminate underground?
Also, can anyone point me in the right direction for code on this? The home is located about 40 minutes north of Seattle, WA. I found this link and I assume it’s accurate? https://basc.pnnl.gov/resource-guides/gutters-and-downspouts
