If you are preparing to take the B1 Residential Building Inspector Certification, you will need this book. The testing center allows you to bring a copy of the 2009 IRC Code Book into the exam with you. If you do not already own one, we recommend purchasing it.
This comprehensive code for homebuilding combines building, plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas, energy, and electrical provisions into a single resource. The 2009 International Residential Code For One- and Two- Family Dwellings uses these provisions to provide detailed insight into the construction of one- and two-family dwellings and townhouses up to three stories high. Using foundational principles that facilitate the use of new materials and building designs to guide the content, this reference guide also establishes minimum regulations using prescriptive provisions.
ICC is a leading organization dedicated to developing a single set of comprehensive, coordinated national model construction codes. To date, 48 U.S. states have adopted various international codes from ICC.
