This is in the attic of a townhouse I looked at this afternoon. As you can see, what appears to be the flame retardant coating on sheathing within 4’ of party walls is flaking off pretty badly. Oddly enough the stuff on the right end of the attic is pretty much intact. Both ends receive equal sunlight and ventilation. Some internet research found no information on this, but the company does have one lawsuit against them for deceptive business practices. Construction Defects | Whitfield Bryson LLP
Have any of you guys seen this before? And, does anyone know of any engineering or other information on this stuff?
Since I need to get this report out tonight I am going to go ahead and recommend investigation by a PE to determine if it will need to be recoated. Since this is in a townhouse I don’t think the HOA is going to be happy. If I am wildly off the mark here please let me know.
