Where is the grade D paper, house wrap, or both?

I only looked at one picture so far, I'm sure there are dozens of other things wrong.

Don't they have city inspectors there?.....

What kind of question is that {do they have city inspectors} ??
Sure they have city inspectors. Do they know what to look for and or do they care those might be the real issues. There is going to be alot of upset homeowners when they figure out the codes were on the books and not enforced on their new homes. It might help if the codes people were allowed more time per inspection. Then again it might not.


My head is getting sore trying to shed some light on the problems.

If I had a new house I would hire a private home inspector when the 8 month rolled around to look it over for defects!

Smart move!

That is why I'm in the business, to help folks who have been taken advantage of, and it keeps me real busy...

Stuccoman,

Where is this mess, Kansas City area also?

Was the grade D and housewrap missing or did you remove it?

No flashing?

In the KC.metro.

No grade D or house wrap behind the trim!

Surely it was inspected.

My understanding is the window companys for a short period of time were saying to install the windows under the siding. Does anyone know if that is true?
