I dont inspect many new homes. This was a model home that was built in 2004.
In the photos attached I wanted to ask about the following.
The exterior vents/outlets had no caulking.
The basement stair stringer was only nailed at the top. It had a railing but I thought there should be protective balusters.
The furnace had no serviceman shut off and the panel was more than 25 feet.
The gas fireplace had no glass doors installed. Isnt this required?
Noted a few cracked floor joists.
Why the air admittance valve. Is this a vent for the condensate drain. Also isnt a code now to drain into a drip cup. Being the house was 2004 was this required then?
Should the column have hardware attached to the main beam or is the weight of the home sufficient?
Are these legitamite items to note on the report?
