New construction problems. Need advice, please!
We’re having our new house being built in Florida. We have hired an inspector and he did a pre-drywall inspection and found a couple dozen issues. The builder rep said they will fix them all and our inspector was supposed to come over again to see if these issues were corrected before they would install the drywall. But they installed the deywall before he could inspect all the fixes! Now we don’t know what do to… We’re not sure how serious these issues are, that’s why we need help from knowledgeable people here as some of the issues sound pretty serious. Here’s what these issues are:
The Boot Vents have not been installed
The House Wrap was damaged (the house has the the siding already installed)
The Windows were not installed level
The Spacing between the windows were not consistent. Variation was a 1/2″ or more difference.
Incorrect window installed (The Window was not the proper type.)
The Truss Chord was damaged/cut (actually, it was broken)
The Roof Sheathing was damaged
Missing support hangers (The Joist Hangers were missing)
Fire Stop was missing in various areas
Insulation was missing on the exterior wall behind tub shower wall
Nail Guards were missing in various locations
The Room appears to have inadequate light wired
The Bathroom Vent Pipe was damaged
The Framing was not level at the time of inspection. This can cause a visual defect if not corrected.
Bowed studs (The Framed Wall had bows in various areas)
The Wall was not installed plumb
The Door Opening Header was not level
The Cabinet Blocking was outside the wall line
Several Wall cavities had exposed nails. Some nails were close to electrical wire also.
We are concerned because most of these are now covered by drywall. The builder rep says they have fixed them but they knew very well that our inspector will be coming again and didn’t wait nor notified us about putting up the drywall. What should we do? Is there a way to verify if the issues were indeed fixed?
P.S. I have more photos to post if that may help.
