    I see the builder is advertising 2 future new builds. Wonder if he'll still be using the LVLs in his new construction?

    Oh, okay. Their MLS is still active and their addresses are still listed as vacant land on the county as well as the town site.

    Update, Another home has structural issues with their LVL's. The home is 3 years old, still falls under the 6 year warranty from NYS the statue of limitations requires the builder is fully responsible for the structural integrity of the home. Builder is waffling........

    Wow, the association thinking of any class action suit?
    Were the issues with the LVL at your place discovered prior to the building of this home?
    If so, wouldn't that be negligence on the builder's part for this 3 year old home?

    The builder is responsible for the repairs on this new home. Homeowner met with the builder and he agreed to redo the deck. Not without resistance on the builders part. The community had not agreed whether or not to go for a class action suit, I think they are not interested in a long drawn out lawsuit. However, in the newer home under construction, I believe the decision to use a different material has been discussed. NO S**T right? One would think that after our homes, the builder would have chosen a different material to use, not often does common sense prevail...

    I would think the code enforcement officer would be sure to check the materials in use

    You are correct, although the CEO has indicated the material should be changed out, it was not. The architect that designs for the builder continues to recommend those LVL's. The builder knew the LVL's were not intended for outdoor use unless they were covered properly, the nitwit still used them. Now that the architect, builder and homeowner have met as a group, the next construction will not have those LVL's.
