Code Compliance in Construction

SAN JOSE – An important aspect of any building project is making sure things are done to code. The State of California has rigorous building code standards, both in regard to structural integrity and energy efficiency, so it requires careful diligence to stay in compliance with the law.

Due to the stringency of California’s building code, it’s easy for do-it-yourselfers to miss important details. For example, many homeowners do their own shopping for finish materials like faucets and light fixtures, but if they aren’t familiar with code requirements (especially those outlined in the California Green Building Standards Code), they may end up getting materials that aren’t code-compliant. This can result in an expensive mistake when the city inspector informs them that their new fixtures have to be replaced.

To avoid these kinds of issues, it’s important to partner with your contractor or designer to ensure code compliance at every level. By staying in line with building code requirements, you can ensure a smooth process and avoid costly mistakes.
