I am stumped and would like you guys opinions:
I just got a distress call, not for an Inspection but for my opinion,
this is a new construction, finished in April. I am sorry that I
have no pictures but I will try my best to describe the situation.
The roof has ridge vent(snow covered), correct soffit vent, the
ceilings are sheetrock with poly between the rock and 20" of
loose blown in. The foundation walls are poured with poly
directly on the concrete with a 2x6 wall in front of that with
craft faced insulation(which is wet)
The underside of the roof sheathing has 1/4" of frost on the entire
roof, all of the windows which are up to date double glass
are iced up at the bottom of each window.
Could it be the poly on the concrete walls and above the sheetrock
ceilings that is causing the bad moisture problem?
I have never in 24 years seen anything quite like this and I wish
that I could help these poor people out.
The builder will not return their calls, of course
Any and all opinions will be greatly appreciated.
