being a builder annnnd a Licenced home Inspector, I can see both points of view.
Listen to the guy with the most experience in home inspections.
As a builder and remodeler for over 25 years, I learned more when I began going into so many different homes I never would have seen as a builder.
I have seen builders doing the wrong things for 20 years....it still does not make it ok.
You are buying the home....not the builder, those things are easy for them to fix if there is an issue. For you it will cost lots.
