How Are Building Codes For Roofs Determined?

building codes

State and federal agencies get to determine their own building codes. Generally speaking though, most choose to just use the standard building codes. Sometimes they will add their own amendments, of course. But in general, more agencies use model building codes published by the International Code Council. This includes building codes for roofs. The International Code Council publishes International Codes (I-Codes) every three years. They publish this frequently to allow for new technology or construction methods to be integrated into code.

The most recently published versions include the 2012 International Building Code2012 International Residential Code2012 International Energy Conservation Code and 2012 International Green Construction Code.
