What's wrong with this picture?


This is how a contractor left a ceiling exhaust fan installed....
He broke the clips on the plastic cover and needs to replace it.
(gee, I wonder why it broke???)
Do you think an inspector would pass this?

Without regard to the inspector, for the 30 minutes or so that it would take, I would make it right, and eliminate any worries about vibration, etc. down the road.

I didn't do the job, so I really have no say, but isn't that supposed to be flush with the bottom of the drywall?
Kinda what the flange is for, right? LOL Maybe they never did this type of job before?

No, based on some of your previous post that I have read, I assumed that you had not done it, so was not barking or biting at you. My point was that it's one of those things that, regardless of whether the inspector took exception, or not, is not right, so if the builder refused to address it, I, as the homeowner, would correct it, so that it is right before the room is finished. As for the flange, I believe that you are correct, but I would glance at the manual, or at least check the fit of the cover to the box, just to be sure.

True, you'd think they'd at least read the instruction manual that almost certainly came with a new-in-the-box unit, right? RIGHT???

LOL

Hey,
Instructions are over rated. Just cut a hole in the ceiling, put a couple of screws in, and call it a day. Hah, I am pretty sure that's how the install went. Great picture DangerMouse.
