That the collapse was not structural, as the porch was in the process of being rebuilt. ISD tends to care about the final product and if that is up to code.

You can tell everything is up to code by looking at the final product?

Considering it looks like there's a still-opened permit for structural work on the porch from back in 2018 that was applied for by the owner instead of a contractor, yeah, it's a shame ISD didn't check anything out until somebody got hurt.
