It is not standard local practice in
Typically a building inspector only has the authority to enforce local ordinances. If there is not an ordinance they have no authority to require it. Also if they are not making everyone do it, they cannot make you do it – there is thing called the equal protection clause in the constitution.
I like Cowboy Bill normally take the 17th off to celebrate constitution day.
From: Gerard Madden,
I always designate a waterstop at the joint on top of the footing in between the stem. Is your wall monolithic stem and footing? I think it’s good practice for basement retaining walls.
What if the code or local code says you need a water stop at the bottom of a basement wall? I would ask for a code section.
On a similar (ignorant)
vein, I have a city building inspector *requiring* that a waterstop be
installed at the bottom of a new residential concrete basement wall. I
resisted but the homeowner/contractor has asked me to not stall the project.
I totally agree with Paul; the inspector should be out building his own project
instead if inserting his desires into mine.
This is ignorant. Have him/her specify where in the building
code this is required or provide a stamped letter (professional stamp, not
city) directing this requirement.
