Pennsylvania - PA - Building Codes

buiding codes - insulationA building code is a set of rules that specify the minimum acceptable level of safety for constructed objects such as buildings and non-building structures. The main purpose of building codes are to protect public health, safety and general welfare as they relate to the construction and occupancy of homes, buildings and structures. The building code becomes law of a particular jurisdiction when formally enacted by the appropriate authority.

There are national and international building codes established as guidelines for local municipal and states to follow and enforce, however the local, or municipal authority has the final say in what is accepted or not accepted in their local jurisdiction.

Building codes are generally intended to be applied by architects and engineers in the design phase of a project, but are also used by home inspection companies, energy auditors, contractors and subcontractors, safety inspectors, environmental scientists, real estate developers, manufacturers of building products and materials, insurance companies, facility managers, tenants, and others.
