And with any masonry building construction, in Chicago.
A nice little phrasing in the Chicago code:
“All masonry residential buildings shall be inspected during and after construction by the Architect or Engineer who designed them, or by a similarly qualified representative, to verify that the building was built as designed.”
So, if there is a problem with a split faced, or any masonry building, it is the responsibilty or the Architect or Engineer to make sure it is done right.
NOT the code inspector, NOT the home inspector and NOT the mason.
Helps with regards to liability and the buyer / owner can get the records to see if these guys actually did the inspection.
Hope this helps;
