My parents are having a modular home installed in SW Florida. They are not happy that the marriage walls and floors have a 3/4" to 1.5" space between them. The installation and manufacturers claim this is the way it is!! "They do 1000's each year this way" They say they will fill the gap with spray foam and drywall filler. My parents find this unnacceptable as they are having wood floors installed and are fearfull of mold and buckling floors. The home is a DCA approved Florida modular home and according to what i have researched are built to the same "codes" as stick built homes! Does anyone know anything about this?? How about where it talks about it in Florida "building codes"?? So far the state has somewhat stepped in and said it is also not acceptable, however the county will not get involved?
Thanks for any advice.
