New construction: Gaps between sill and paper for exterior walls
I’m having a home built with a builder here in Tucson and now that the house is finished with framing, the house has been completed with this styrofoam wrap around the house. Most of the exterior walls have no OSB sheathing, but instead there is this black paper attached to the studs on the exterior on which the foam is placed upon. At the bottom on the sill, there are gaps where I can see light from the outside between what appears to be the vertical portion of the weep screed and the sill. There are also gaps between the paper and the vertical portion of the weep screed. My questions is:
Are there any building codes that would required the builder to seal these gaps up prior to insulation (sprayed in cellulose)?
Thank you in advance for any advice or help anyone can provide. I am coming from another house with scorpion problems and this seems like a huge invitation for critters if left unaddressed.
