Contains 580 pages of indispensable information for renovators and designers with over 20 flow charts, 80 diagrams, and selected Code content.

The term renovation is not defined by the Building Code, but usually means to include all forms of building alteration, extension, construction and repair for which a building permit is required. The applicable legal requirements, such as building permit requirements, material alterations and prescribed Building Code inspections, are also explained with helpful flow charts.

Over 85 Compliance Alternatives are addressed with Code interpretation, diagrams, and advice for renovators.

Knowing how to apply the Building Code requirements during renovation can save time and material by avoiding unnecessary change and it is also benefitial to be able to explain to municipal officials how your construction complies with the Building Code.
