    Deck Construction Based on the 2021 IRC

    For years, the amount of information about decks that was provided in the codes was woefully inadequate.  At one time, the American Wood Council filled that gap by providing a publication (DCA-6) that provided prescriptive guidelines for deck construction. The last edition of DCA-6 was based on the 2015 codes. After that, the IRC increased the amount of code material on decks, and substantial amounts of new material were added in the 2021 IRC.  Glenn Mathewson, the author of this new book, represented the North American Deck and Railing Assocation (NADRA) in their code initiatives for the 2021 IRC. This book is THE authoritative source of information on decks.

    Electrical Inspection of Existing Dwellings

    Electrical Inspection of Existing Dwellings

    10 years ago, Code Check’s lead author Douglas Hansen wrote what was called “The best book ever written on electrical inspections for home inspectors.” Now, with the help of Redwood Kardon and Jim Katen, Douglas has completely re-written Electrical Inspections of Existing Dwellings. Over twice the original size, it has been updated to the 2011 NEC, and is packed with information to help inspectors through all aspects of an electrical inspection.

    The book functions as a training manual with a systematic approach to electrical inspections. It also serves as a guide to locate the specific NEC sections that apply to home inspections, and it includes extensive historical notes on when different items entered the code and how it has changed over the years.

    Featuring illustrations by Paddy Morrissey, the book includes over 900 drawings, tables, and photographs, and is available in both print (black and white) and electronic format (full color).
