Hi Smart Inspectors,

I'm noticing severe draft coming in from the corner of the kitchen. It is coming from the bottom opening at the corner of the kitchen cabinet.

The kitchen cabinet set has a hollow section at the corner. There is always cold air there, and the corner is the wall shared with outside. There is big opening at the bottom. I can't visually see anything from the opening.

I'm not sure if they should just close that opening and call it good or is there a bigger problem with the insulation at the corner. When I stuff old clothes in the opening for testing, draft significantly reduces. Not sure how to even check insulation issues because there is not access to that corner.

Any advice please
Hi Mike,

Thanks for the quick response. Really appreciate it. Attached a close up picture. It is soft and is similar to thermocore. Like you say it will disintegrate further as there is no concrete layer on top.

Hi Inspectors,

I have curious case where insulation around the house above the foundation is peeling off. There should be cement layer above the insulation, but it looks like the cement job is poor and due to weather the insulation is coming off.
Will this cause harm to foundation over time, is this is a big issue?

Please advise. Thanks.
