For those building a home—a safe home—knowing the latest codes is essential. Code Check, an invaluable resource now in its seventh edition, gives builders, remodelers, and inspectors everything they need to know to avoid common code violations and ultimately save time and money. Using clear language and helpful diagrams, Code Check reflects the most up-to-date changes in the 2012 International Residential Code. It also cross-references the Uniform Plumbing Code, Uniform Mechanical Code, and the National Electrical Code to arm readers with the most precise information to date. With an emphasis on central safety principles that underlie building codes throughout the U.S., Code Check gets high grades for its accuracy, relevancy, and ease of use.
The Code Check series provides answers to all types of building code questions. The books are filled with essential information, yet are handy enough to take to the job site.
