WARNING TO POTENTIAL HOME BUYERS

Stanley Martin has been and continues to violate Residential Building Codes.  Prince William County Code Enforcement Office cited them with six violations on my home alone!  I found two new homeowners in Small's Crossing (12900 Jessica Ridge Way and 5504 Amberview Ct) who have or are still having problems with their new homes ranging from water main leaks and natural gas leaks to foundation and wall cracks.  Every home that I saw has potential code violations discussed below.  Be smart and talk to your potential neighbors before buying! 

The most common building code violations I am finding, literally every home with brick veneer, is the "fake" thru-wall flashing where a bay/box window or roofline meets the vertical brick veneer.  Code requires this flashing to be stepped with the brick and actually installed "thru-wall" with correctly spaced weep holes (no more than 32 inches apart).  Builders like Stanley Martin simply are gluing this flashing to the face of brick, which allows water to freely run behind it onto the ceiling of a bay window, room or garage below it.  In nearly every water intrusion case I have found, improperly installed flashing and weepholes are present and blatantly visible from the street.  County Code Enforcement officials should be catching this, but they are not.
