Hey guys, hoping someone can help me out. I did a wind mit on a townhouse built in 1980 a couple of months ago. Shortly after insurance company calls and tells me that her contractor that does all of her wind mits says that the building code should be A. Built in compliance with FBC 2001. How can this be? Am I off on something? I also got an email stating that section 3 should be marked C because “In 2007 the state of Florida changed codes where it is mandatory to use b or c for the nail pattern when replacing a roof.” That may be the case, but I think we all know that code isn’t always followed, and all I could locate were 6d nails. So I can’t verify what I can’t see.
So today I got a call from the client saying he was in the insurance office and was asked to sign something from another inspector (the insurance company’s guy) who did a separate wind mit.
Sounds kind of fishy to me, what do you guys think? And was I wrong to begin with?
