ICC and NAHB offer TechNotes series to assist builders

The International Code Council (ICC) and ICC Evaluation Service have partnered with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) to distribute a TechNotes series developed by NAHB's Construction Technology Research Subcommittee and Innovation Research Lab.

The TechNotes series is designed to help builders understand and apply the most recent code requirements, as well as implement best practices to avoid building-performance issues related to interior humidity levels, condensation in wall and roof assemblies, and interior air quality.

"NAHB has worked diligently in creating these TechNotes, and we are confident these consolidated and simplified guidelines will be beneficial to both home builders and building officials in creating safe and affordable homes," says Chip Dence, chairman of NAHB's Construction Codes and Standards Committee.
