Residential Code Violations (Part 1)

Published 2021-10-16
Watch, listen, and learn as I take you through a Code Violation Journey. This is Part 1 of a compilation of the most common code violations that I encounter everyday, highlighting Residential Framing & Final Inspection. All violations are based on the 2018 IRC or Manufacturer's Installation Instructions. So, if you're a Building Inspector, Home Inspector, or Contractor...take note & enjoy.

  • Your videos are excellent. I have been watching them all day. You keep them reasonably long, educational, talk about the problem and solutions, and keep it professional.

    I'm in Tennessee and I wish I could have you for a instructor / boss. I caught most of the violations as you showed them but a few I've never heard of. Way to stay on top of your game. You 'da Man!

    Really appeciate your inspection video. They are very informative, pointing out lots of details that i might otherwise not recognize as important issues. I.m thinking of moving to florida and buying a new home.
    Thanks again.

    Good video bud. I'm a framing contractor in Louisiana. We dont have same codes as y'all but very informative.

    Keep up the good work and helping us to learn more codes

    Hi First off Thank you for sharing your view on inspections... I am an Instructor of the electrical trade and teach online and have incorporated your videos into my classroom... I have a request, Can you do an Electrical Violatio9n Video of just electrical issues,.,, as an Instructor who searches for classroom content I find that it is difficult to collect video that has High Educational Value, So I like your videos, and would like/SUGGEST A DEDICATED TO ELECTRICAL VIDEO... Thank you As I look forward to viewing this

    Hey thanks for the info, I'm a Mechanical, Plumbing and Gas inspector in New Orleans looking to get my building certifications. I just subscribed to your channel for more updates on building code info

    Great info! I’m a homeowner getting ready to build a shop. I am deathly afraid of committing any violations, period. After all-it will be my shop!

    Just browsing but learning along the way; appreciate your sharing your findings so that we might not go astray. Have a coffee on us! :)

    9:07 Just wanted to add that I believe that you can use 2x4 walls on the exterior so long as you have at least R5 exterior insulation. It looks to me like extiror insulation there.

    Great Channel, I just started a new job as a building inspector. I've been in construction for 30yrs but not much in house building. Whats your advise on learning codes

    At video point 14:49,..... Wow, I heard inspectors letting folks slide on through if stair risers are slightly over by 1/2 sometimes slightly more that the nominal 3/8 but, Come on man!! How did this person expect for this to pass. That's dangerous and uncalled for. We all have our beefs with building inspectors but this is a clear case of code violation. Thanks for the video. I am remodeling a house for the first time. I've been reading my IRC book faithfully like a Reverend reads a Bible. I'm sure I'm going to miss something or get violated on something but it won't be as blatant as that stair riser!!!

    Thanks 🙏 Does the inspection process begin with the final engineer plans?
  • Liam johnny33
    Very informative sir..
    Keep posting.. excellent work 👍
  • Earl McGill
    That last one made me bust a gut laughing! Drywall will never stay up in a crawl space, just a waste of time putting it up. Looks like the code writers are writing jokes now!
  • artemio velazquez
    Thanks for your videos, its a lot of information.
    Can you do more about electrical.
    Like how do you guys like us to do a correct installation.

  • Jon Rutherig
    Excellent job finding various violations..California is Simpsons capital..glad to see you pointing them your videos...GC in California
  • Oscar Juarez
    I think your videos are very informative and you love what you do. But, your intro is really long and a lot of information is repeated or just too many words are used. I believe this videos could provide more value by trying to summarize them and making them more straight for the point.
  • buck johnson
    These are great videos, thank you so much.
  • Ron Thomas
    Awesome video! Can you identify the IRC Section that requires bolting of interior load bearing walls you had in the video?
