Structural Wood Code Experts

Recommended Posts

The home inspection world is rife with folklore. One inspector will "learn" a bad piece of information and then pass it on to another inspector and before you know it, another inspection myth has been created.

Code discussions seem to result in the most misunderstandings but they needn't be - at least not where wood or engineered lumber is concerned. If you've got a question about engineered or dimensional structural wood, the American Wood Council's Codes and Standards Staff can help. The AWC has staff spread out all around the country whose primary function is to assist with code questions about lumber.

Phone numbers and contact information can be found here. Make sure you bookmark this site because it is a treasure trove of useful information for home inspectors.
