Get Ready for the 2018 IRC

Filed in Codes and Standards, Education by on May 9, 2017 0 Comments

blueprintStates and jurisdictions across the country are making plans to adopt the 2018 International Residential Code (IRC) next year – and that means home builders in those markets need to be ready.

The webinar Significant Changes to the 2018 International Residential Code takes place from 2-3 p.m. ET on Thursday, May 25, and highlights the differences between the upcoming code and the 2015 version, including significant updates to energy-efficiency requirements.

Key issues covered during the presentation include:

  • Changes in seismic design categories
  • Provisions for king studs and “tall” studs
  • Attic insulation and “buried ducts”

Join speakers Gary Ehrlich and Dan Buuck, both members of the NAHB Construction, Codes and Standards staff, as they walk you through these changes.

Although this is a free webinar (thanks to the sponsorship of the International Code Council), you’ll still need to register to attend.
