Model codes, such as those developed by the International Code Council (ICC), serve as the technical basis for state, county and local adoption of codes that regulate the design, construction and operations of buildings. ICC, the promulgator of the International Building Code, recently updated and published revised editions of its model codes, referred to as the “I-codes.” As jurisdictions begin the processes of updating their codes, you should be aware of the roofing-related changes incorporated into the 2015 I-codes. Following is an overview of some of the more significant roofing-related changes.
