TIGERLOOSE

The framing was replaced due to rot.  The ducts serve bathroom and kitchen fans.


The job entailed a bathroom exhaust fan.  Previously the fan duct terminated at the attic vent.  The correction stated that the duct can't terminate within the attic.  The contractor said that he would cut a hole in the attic vent and stick the end of the duct through the hole. I told him no and said to go through the roof or the wall.  He stuck a foundation vent next to the attic vent and the duct terminates behind the vent.

The lid was insulated prior to any inspection.  I asked that the insulation be removed.  I found this abandoned fan duct.  The lady that lives there was present.  I wonder what she thought of the contractor after seeing this.
