Building codes can have a profound impact on the comfort and safety of residents as well as the cost of construction and the cost of operating the home. NAHB can help its members work toward cost-effective and safe model building codes. Contact your staff liaison to learn more about the work NAHB does on the industry’s behalf or if you have specific questions about local building codes in your area.
