The 2015 INTERNATIONAL RESIDENTIAL CODEĀ® COMMENTARY, VOLUME 1 is much more than a codebook; it's an in-depth look at the code's real-world applications and a powerful teaching tool designed to give students a solid foundation in its uses. The book's approach is unique; it pairs the text of the code with valuable commentaries that instill a deeper understanding of its provisions. From technical requirements and illustrations to discussions of its practical implications and consequences when not followed, coverage is complete and detailed, but never overwhelming. As a result, this is an indispensable resource for anyone seeking to to prepare for the real-world scenarios and challenges that they may encounter.
