Re: Supplemental health, dental, vision, critical illness insurance through InterNACH

Re: What is this?

What should he say? Seal MAY fail therefore the glass should be replaced? What if the window is 10 years old and hasn't failed yet?

Re: After many years... it's time to buy physical gold again folks.

Gold is up 1.36% YTD and 1.5% over the past month.

My investments are up 15.51% YTD and 17.92% for 1 month.

Gold is always a laggard and has no intrinsic value. It is a rock. Period.

Re: Water Heater Overflow Pipe material ?

Rated PVC and any other material approved for use as distribution piping is acceptable for a TPR pipe. This plastic pipe however is too close to the draft hood/flue.

Re: Pergola - external structure attached to house

You should read what I said above. The siding inspection is required and the siding has a defect in that there is a structure bolted directly to it. I'd ask for a refund at a minimum and consider...

Re: Pergola - external structure attached to house

The inspector is required to inspect the exterior siding and that looks like fiber cement. Fiber cement manufacturers, namely Hardi-Plank, prohibit the attachment of anything to their product. I...

Re: Missing main panel legend

Various circuits within the main panel are not labeled, were mis-identified, or the labels were illegible or non-specific. They should be properly labeled for safety reasons, and so that the...

Re: Pergola - external structure attached to house

If it's attached to the home, it's part of the home and should have been inspected. I don't recollect that a pergola is excluded by the SOP.

Re: Window egress question

I was at a loss for words. I said, well, I better research that. The NC code itself is below. As said above, no special knowledge or tools shall be required.
