Just went through that crap ... hell, still going through that crap, and we
moved in 10 months ago. Write a letter stating the non-spec error, certify
mail to the builder. Do it NOW, while it is fresh on your mind. This will be
the biggest favor you ever did yourself! Safeguard the original, approved
Make damn sure that the discrepancy does not depart from, or violate, the
engineering plans, If so, request a "letter of exception" from the builder
before your final payment.
Get it done NOW, even though you may let them off the hook later on.
Builders wait till the last minute to pile on charges, you will need as
much ammunition/clout on your side before that time.
Hate to be so strident, but know without a doubt that nice guys get screwed,
with no kisses, in this business.
