The 2012 International Energy Conservation Code® (IECC 2012) includes new requirements intended to limit air leakage through buildings’ thermal envelopes, including roof assemblies. These requirements are changes from the code’s previous editions and could make designing mechanically attached single-ply membrane roof assemblies more complicated.
