Over the years I have heard all sorts of BS stories from new construction builders about why they did not do one thing, or another. …It gets really old.
But I will give this guy the benefit of the doubt (for a minute), and accept the fact that I don’t always know everything, and some times codes do change.
So has any one heard of a code change that eliminates the requirement for soffit vents (bird block vents)? In this case there are no soffit vents any where, and I could see that a minimal amount of box vents were installed lower on the roof near the soffits instead. The builder stated that new building and fire codes required this installation.
I have researched, but fail to find anything supporting his position.
So what do you guys know about this?
