Re: Alumiconn

What I see is an old style SqD QO breaker. Did it have grooves on the handle? I also don't see any AL/CU labeling on it. It really doesn't matter now (if you flagged this on a 4pt)...the damage is...

Re: Pasco County, FL Permit Web Site, Bad Information from

Re: Pasco County, FL Permit Web Site, Bad Information from

So, what is the actual glitch, and where did you hear this from?

Re: Can you tell me about this wall structure?

Interesting. I've never seen it before, but I'm in FL. Bob Vila might know.

Re: A question for the sparkys.

No clue, unless someone switched out the handle. Shouldn't say 30 on it.

Re: Wind Mitigation Missed Nails

Unless you can definitively verify that the missed nail run was backed up, you should assume that it wasn't. All of those long missed lines would revert back to the original nailing (weakest...

Re: Main Disconnect

Google "Split bus panel". The top six breakers make up the service disconnect.

Re: Water Heater Overflow Pipe material ?

Should be 1" PEX due to fitting restriction. That's the code in my area.

Re: Electric Panel and Spray Foam

There are special foam products to seal the conduit, but who knows what they used there. Standard electricians putty should be used.

Re: Bedroom Yes or No ?

Agreed. There is nothing in the current code that says a bedroom requires a closet. More than 70sf, natural light, fresh air ventilation, and emergency escape means are required.

Re: Moisture intrusion in Florida homes

The FBC requires that homes are protected from water infiltration. It's usually workmanship errors or subpar building materials that cause most of the problems. Stucco contractors are slowly learning...

Re: Opinions wanted - Friends New Build

Certainly needs flashings there. Any wind driven rain will enter the attic space.

Re: Neutral on breaker

It's not a neutral. It's a white wire on a breaker and part of a 240v circuit. Yes, a handle tie and identification is required. You also have tinned copper, cloth wiring in there.

Re: Using a Drone..

A lot less time than a hospital stay. You won't use one on every roof, just the ones you shouldn't be walking on anyway.

Yep, we call them vent boots in these parts. I hope you read up on black algae and AR shingles vs non-AR shingles.

Re: Window egress question

It's not that creative. I've used that defense before doing bedroom additions, and it worked with AHJ. The ingress question is not really valid as most windows are locked anyway and would impede a...
