Is the rule for subflooring; leveled with a variance of 3/16" in a 10ft
radius a code for that the builder has to abide by? My builder has mine with
a 3/4" variance and I want to talk to them, but just want the facts first.
This is so specific to your locale you'd need to contact your building
commission or whoever regulates such things.
Sounds like your builder doesn't know what the f*** he/she is doing.
If the particle board/plywood is off by that much, than the joists
probably are, which means the foundation may be, which may put you at a
lawyer's office at some point.
New houses suck !
Not sure what the code is, but that seems like 3/16" in 10 feet seems
like an impossibly high standard. Thats 3/32 in 5 feet. Lots of your
cheaper levels (and more expensive levels that have been around the
block) can be off by that much. Is this subfloor plywood on joists?
considering the straightness of the lumber, etc, it's tough to get
things perfect. How did you figure out that it was 3/4 in 10 feet?
Depends too on where it is: If its under kitchen cabinets it is a more
3/16" in 10 ft. is nothing. Don't say anything to the builder. If you get
him pissed off, there are all kinds of corners he can cut on purpose that
you'll never notice. Wait until you find something important to complain
