Synopsis: Don't let your jobs be held up by not passing code inspections the first time. Smooth sign-off is the goal, but to make that happen on the job site you need to understand the latest editions of the International Building Code and the International Residential Code.
Understanding what the international codes require can be a real challenge. This new, completely revised Contractor's Guide to the Building Code cuts through the legalese of the code books. It explains the important requirements for residential and light commercial structures in plain, simple English so you can get it right the first time.
New in the edition are: 1. Completely updated instructions on how to follow the 2006 IRC and IBC. 2. A chapter on electrical requirements for one- and two-family dwellings. 3. Numerous website URLs where you can find additional information on specialized subjects. 4. A CD-ROM with all the material in the book and a handy quick look-up feature.
This book spells out code requirements for approved materials, construction methods and acceptable alternatives for: electrical, excavation, finishing, foundations, framing, glazing, insulation, masonry and concrete, plumbing & HVAC, remodeling, roofing, siding, site preparation, stairs, venting.
With this book you'll learn where exceptions are likely to be granted, where they won't, and how to negotiate a compromise that both you and the inspector can live with. If you do business in cities or counties that follow the International Building Code or the International Residential Code, this reference belongs on your desk.
About the Author:
Jack Hageman has been on both sides of the inspector's counter -- as a builder waving his hammer at the inspector, and as the inspector, waving his code book at the builder. For ten years he was Building Inspector for the City of Kennewick, Washington. Jack also taught the building code at universities in Washington.
Mr. Hageman's goal in writing this book was to help contractor's avoid expensive code errors. Knowing and understanding the Code isn't always easy, and keeping up-to-date with Code changes, even harder. But applying the easy-to-understand explanations in this book make following the Code a lot less complicated.
