My new house is being built. The OSB sheathing was damaged b/c my neighbor's sprinkler sprayed on it for 3 days during a hot summer. The sheathing warped with molds build up in the inside. The builder instead of replacing the sheathings, went ahead and saw the areas where they warped and then nailed them to 2x4 boards in the inside to flatting them out. I can see the 2x4 from outside of the house throug 1" gaps. Should the builder replace the sheathing??? Please let me know ASAP so I can have them redo the sheathing.

Your advice is greatly appreciated because I feel like I am being ripped off.

One reason I will not use osb is because it fails so easy when wetted. if there is gapping like that, it is simply a sign of hack work. Let hinm know he needs to do a professional job. you don't want to wait until he messes up the whiole house before you try to get him on track

Excellence is its own reward!
