Re: Laundry tub waste line: Standard #14

Agreed. The stand pipe is for the washer. The drain for a laundry tub has the same standards as any other sink in the home.

Re: Wind mit on 2 homes on one property

One wind report for each building. You do not combine two buildings on one wind mitigation report. Check with the insurance agent on the guest house, as they usually don't get a wind mitigation on...

Re: Help in Identifing unit

Re: Drone advice/recommendations?

What makes you think this exempts a drone pilot from obtaining a 107 license? It has nothing to do with licensing.

Re: PB or not?

I agree, not much of an issue with these, except age, and insurance companies are mandating replacement in FL. They were taken off shelves and no longer manufactured many years ago. The lighter grey...

Re: Do I have a 60 AMP service ?

What the hell did the fuses say on them (out of photo), or the actual size of the SE conductors?

Re: Spliced neutrals in panel

I think it's safe to say that when you see two neutrals tied together and pigtailed out to the neutral bar, it should be called out for further review. It may be ok if on the same circuit, but it may...

Re: Townhome Wind Mitigation

If you already know what each unit has, then go with the weakest connection. There really is not much credit difference between clip and single wrap anyway.

Re: Hip or gable?

That may work with the agent (to a point), however, the underwriter has the right to delay the credits and override it with a reinspection. So, a retail report is not gospel.

Re: 30-lb Felt Underlayment UV Exposure?

If it gets wet, just wait a few hours in the sun. It will shrink right back to flat. Personally, I would have it covered within a few days, but I think it will be ok for up to a month or so if it...

Re: Deck and roof support

It's difficult to get a builder to do anything unless he is confronted with a code violation or an engineer's letter stating that is deficient. I would have flagged that too. That cardboard form is...

Re: Drone advice/recommendations?

Mavic Pro is what I use. There are better ones, and there are worse ones. Mavic seems to be just right for roof inspections.

Re: RC Roof inspection robot.

RC robots wouldn't work too good on roofs. That would take forever to crawl the whole roof. And, what about Spanish tile roofs? Use a quality drone, or cam pole for roofs you can't walk...and get the...

Re: Wind Mitigation. Roof covering credit

Yes, the roof covering is also FBC. Use the application date of the original build and include that permit summary in the report. The 2004 reference allows you to submit without the permit info.

Re: Re-roof Question

The code allows adding the plywood over the battens. Removing the battens would require engineering, and possible adding support rafters due to span.
