I just moved into a new housing development. These homes are framed, floors (OSB board) are in place. Windows are installed. The workers leave in the evening and all of the windows are left open. And no tar paper on the wood roof yet. We've had storms. I'm a female and just learning about building! After some storms I've gone into some of these structures and the OSB board is saturated with water. This company puts these homes up in days. My question is, if they cover that OSB board after it's saturated, will that not cause problems down the road with black mold or anything else? My home was built this past winter. I have hardwood in my kitchen/great room. I moved in March 5, 2014. In the past two months there are about five planks of wood that have a ripply effect. Customer service sent out the floor guy and he called it "cupping" which is caused by moisture. I'm waiting to hear back from the company but after seeing this board get soaking wet in other homes and then just covered up with flooring, can that create a problem in the future? This company has this OSB board delivered to the site and sometimes it's left outside "uncovered" for days in the rain before being installed. I was shocked to see that they put the roof on and don't cover it with protective covering and so all of the rain goes right in the home.
