In the course of new construction home inspections, even seemingly minor oversights can have significant repercussions. Ashi-Certified Inspector Britt B., during a recent assessment, encountered a notable defect that merits attention—the presence of an exposed sewer line.
The essence of proper construction lies in attention to detail, and this scenario highlights a crucial omission. The sewer line, instead of being appropriately buried beneath the ground, was exposed and vulnerable. This raises immediate concerns, particularly for safety and the long-term functionality of the system.
Inspector Britt B.'s keen observation underscores the importance of adhering to established construction standards. An exposed sewer line not only poses a tripping hazard for occupants but also leaves the infrastructure susceptible to damage from machinery and external factors.
