Good Morning to all!
I purchased a new construction home in June. To make a long story short, after having a major ant problem, I found a hole where the foundation and exterior meet . The ants were coming through this hole into the home. Next to the hole was a long gap. I walked around the entire house looking for more holes and noticed that there were big gaps sporadically. I can see lizards coming and going from these gaps.
I was told recently by our project manager the gaps should not be there (originally he said maybe they are there for ventilation?), and they were going to put concrete and then re-stucco it.
This got me thinking about ventilation, and after doing research, weep screeds. I do not see any holes or “weep screeds.” I know my home has synthetic stucco, which in which moisture can be a problem if trapped.
My question is should i be able to see weep holes? I took a picture of the gap and area in question, but the website isn’t allowing me to attach.
