  28. Building Code Compliance for Contractors & Inspectors eBook (PDF)

    Building Code Compliance for Contractors & Inspectors eBook (PDF)

    An answer book for both contractors and building inspectors, this manual explains what it takes to pass inspections under the 2009 International Residential Code. It includes a code checklist for every trade, covering some of the most common reasons why inspectors reject residential work – footings, foundations, slabs, framing, sheathing, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, energy conservation and final inspection.

    Knowing in advance what the inspector wants to see gives contractors an (almost unfair) advantage. To pass inspection, just go down the checklists in this manual before the inspector arrives. Even better, use this manual as a guide to what constitutes good construction practice – and is almost certain to pass inspection.

    This manual will be worth many times the cover price:

    • If your fingers are crossed every time an inspector walks on the job.
    • If failed inspections are an embarrassing waste of time and money.
    • If you want to build a reputation for professional-quality work.
    • If you need to improve relations with code-enforcement personnel.

    The author steps you through the entire permit process, item by item – permit processing, plan review, zoning, site development, all the codes (IRC, IBC, IPC, IMC, etc.), and rules recommend for both contractors and inspectors:

    • Tips for developing good relations with the building inspector.
    • What to do and what to avoid when your job doesn't pass inspection.
    • What to do if you feel you're being treated unfairly (appeals).
    • Where the inspector has latitude and when it doesn't pay to argue.
    • Dozens of tips to ensure you pass the next inspection.
    • Who to ask for at the building department when you need help.

    But this is more than a guide to code-compliance. It's also a handbook for building inspectors and anyone interested in a code enforcement career. The author explains how to qualify yourself for a job at the local building department, how to sail through the examination and interview process, and what it takes to be an effective code enforcement official.

    If your work requires getting permits and passing inspections, put this manual to work on your next job.

    The Author: Lynn Underwood is Chief Building Official for Norfolk, Virginia. He has been a code enforcement official for nearly 30 years, holds a dozen certifications, including plans examiner, building, plumbing, mechanical and electrical inspector, and has conducted hundreds of on-site inspections. There's lifetime of code-compliance and enforcement savvy between the covers of this manual.
