I am thankful for the input from seasoned Pro's such as yourself. I agree with your technical assessment of course.
The buyer depends on the builder to build a home within generally accepted construction standards. To me this scenario is sub standard.
No lack of preparation on the buyers part on this one. He did after all hire me to inspect it prior to insulation. This is the comment that I made in my report even though the insulation installation had not begun yet when I inspected the structure:
" Note to client: It is important that proper ventilation of air from soffit vents to upper passive roof vents is unobstructed. When insulation batts are installed into rafter bays on sloped ceiling, work with builder to insure that an adequate air gap exists between insulation batts and roof sheathing in each and every rafter bay."
The client tried to get the builder to install the baffles correctly base on my comment. Despite this, the builder went ahead and put the sheetrock up. I think it was a sh*tty thing to do.
I blame the builder and the sub on this one. The photo that I posted was actually taken by my client and sent to me after the pre-insulation inspection.
We're NACHI. Get over it.
