A NEW CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION IS A MUST!
Here are couple of photos from last month's new construction inspection.
The brick veneer is missing REQUIRED weep holes and flashing to allow moisture to drain. This is a defect that can damage the building materials.
The blue tape in the photo shows the length and location of the cracks. (The buyer reported that the builder "hurried" to complete the home, and would not allow a home inspection until after they closed.) Now the builder has conduct repairs to the benefit of the buyer.
Check out the photo of the roof below. Notice the unsealed/raised shingles?
Here's the reason why...
Incorrect installation of the fasteners!
The railing is loose, and the city building official passed this!
