I would like opinions about these pictures.
I inspected this house on three occasions.
During the first inspection, which was conducted as a one-year builders warranty inspection, I found water intrusion into the house from inadequate roof, siding and gutter installation.
The builder refused to repair the house for almost a year after notification when the first homeowners were selling the property.
Because the repair was conducted so late, they gave the new buyers a one-year warranty on the repair they made.
It is now one year since the repair in the current homeowner contracted from a come back and take another look. Attached is what I found.
The repairs they made improved upon the situation however the situation is not gone. Also the workmanship of the repair is obviously inadequate.
[size=2]The client’s husband is deployed in Iraq and she has to handle this on her own. I think I’ll be getting a little more involved in this than I normally do.
Due to the builders past performance, it is likely this will drag on.
I have a laundry list of discrepancies concerning these repairs, but I would like a fresh set of eyes. Kick out flashing was recommended but not employed during the first repair. Inappropriate caulking/flashing created the first mess. Additional caulking of the first repair improved the situation but will obviously not last and is currently not 100% waterproof.
