New Maine State Building Codes

Author: Travis Kinney

Yesterday (December 1, 2010) new building codes went into effect across the State of Maine. There is now a State wide residential building code – IRC (International Residential Code) 2009. There is a separate code for residential renovations IEBC (International Existing Building Code) 2009 and there is a new energy code International Energy Conservation Code 2009, and a new indoor air quality standard ASHRAE standard 62.2. There’s also the ASTM E 1465 06 Standard Practice for Radon Control. I had one project that just snuck under the radar on November 30 in Yarmouth. Phew. If I was a day later I would have had to provide additional documentation and details to meet the new requirements. I just spend $280 on the new code books, so will be studying up to see what the new standards require.
