Editor's note: Following is part two of a two-part series addressing building codes. Part one appeared in the December 2017 issue.

The International Code Council® (ICC), promulgator of the International Residential Code,® International Existing Building Code® and other related international codes, recently updated and published revised editions of its model codes, known as the "I-Codes," as part of its normal three-year update cycle.

In part one of this two-part series, I reviewed the more significant roofing-related changes to the International Building Code,® International Energy Conservation Code,® International Fire Code® and International Plumbing Code.® Part two addresses the significant roofing-related changes to the International Residential Code and International Existing Building Code.
