Down here they won't talk to a homeowner at a meeting or in the office....they don't have time for the 40?'s a homeowner ask's...codes have gotten way to complex to take up what little time they do have trying to explain all the do's an dont's as the line is forming out the door....they only want to deal with contractors and their getting good at it pushing out everyone else out the door.

BUY THE CODE BOOK.....it's all in there, then some...THEN get all the new updates as they come out....no such thing as a shack or cottage anymore.

ps....inspectors can and do change their minds..good luck fighting that one.

plywood can be used if it's a single sheet covering an opening,BUT if you butt 2 sheets together to cover an opening,that won't fly.Like a garage door or a big picture window..then you need to spend big bucks for a metal storm panel...
no more leaving kraft faced insulation uncovered in between rafters in a storage space either..has to be covered with sheetrock in case of fire..it goes on an on.$$$$$$$

We do not get charged for every inspection here in Hanover...just a single fee! Code book, schmode book! You can have the code book and state guidelines...whatever and then the power hungry inspectors make their own rules!!! I have seen it done with Fire Prevention when I was installing oil tanks! Nevermind they are statewide rules and regs......they make up their own!!

Almost time to get our fish on!!!

Job security. The more times they have to go back and do follow-up inspections, the more perceived validity there is to their job. While I do believe there is *some* reasonable need for building inspectors, it seems that most are allowed to operate as mavericks that create their own rules and operate on a whim.

Maybe the inspector doesn't like answering questions to home owners but tough cookies,,,.. Homies and Lowes has developed a huge DIY market ,, A lot of people like working on their own house .. A lot of people like to abide by the law and pull permits (dopes). That's the reality of the situation . Tough to make money residential any way. Too many contractors cutting each others throats . At least that is what was happening when I was out there . Are contractors still competing with firemen for jobs ? hated that .

Wow you should be watching the episodes of TOH they are rebuilding a house in Narragansett on the water, and they have the same issues. There was talk of building panels to cover the windows in case of a hurricane because the hurricane window were 2 to 3 times as much as the windows they used...

Yo hit the nail on the head Homies and Lowes developed a huge do it yourself market, and too many people now do things half assed, or unsafe. My buddies girlfriend owns a rental in a real nice town. She had a friend redo the front stairs about 3 years ago. Latest tenant just moved out so the were going to rip off the fir, and replace it with Trex. They started the rip and soon found the exterior 4"x6" totally rotted and failing across the front. The person who rebuilt the stairs cut out a section at the top of the stair and replaced it with a single piece of 2"x6" Under the splice was a 2"x4" vertical sitting on a 2"x4" on the flat that was bending under load. This was a collapse waiting to happen. So we ripped it out and started new. My buddy wanted to take all kinds of shortcuts to save some money, but I would not let him, if I was doing it , it was getting done right. Maybe Homies and Lowes should open an area of their stores for code questions....

sounds like a law suit coming for a falty install.....a friend is going through one now...wheel chair ramp was bought...a visiting nurse was walking up the ramp..ramp goes to the ground...shes now messed up big time....home owners insur. says bad ramp..ramp co. says bad install,falls on the home owner...shes waiting for a settlement.

Point is..insur. co's are starting to look to see if the work was permitted or not...is it on record as such with the town,if it was then they know it was done right because of the codes and inspections....no record of work done?.hmmm! sorry your claim is invalid we can't help you.Doesn't pay to screw with saving a few bucks by doing things undercover...it will come back to bite you in the A$$.

We just added 300.00 worth of storm hardware on a new garage door per code because of the 110 mph wind code....new house..no op permitt would be given without it..inspector won't sign off unless it was done....State code not his.
