GeneDavis Posted December 13, 2021 Share Posted December 13, 2021 My tract house has a roof plane coming to a "dead" valley, a situation any of us knows, if we pay attention, required a cricket. It's in Florida, and the state's code mandates a cricket when the abutting penetration wall length is 30 inches or more. My condition is 56 inches. The house is a year out of warranty, and builder says he bears no responsibility to fix it. He repaired a leak in the area when the house was approaching the end of its 2 year warranty. The leak is back. The builder says too bad. The county's building department says it is not their responsibility to catch this in plans review. They say if the plan comes to them, as all plans must do, bearing the seal of the state-licensed pro, the signoff means the design meets code in every respect. So the building department sends me to the firm who designed the house, saying it's their fault. And they send me to an independent engineer, the guy with the license and stamp, and the designers say it's his job to catch it. The engineer won't return my call, but I just left the message earlier today. I said nothing about code or a problem in my message, only that I needed some information only he would have, for a plan he reviewed and signed. How would this go in the jurisdictions in which you work? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
