For the first time, we are offering a book that was not written by the Code Check team. ICC’s book on deck construction fills an important need in the construction industry and inspection world. Written by Glenn Mathewson (of BuildingCodeCollege.com) the book includes all the relevant text on decks from the 2021 International Residential Code as well as commentary on several related aspects of the code.
We especially recommend this book to persons who do not own their own copy of the 2021 IRC. It provides clear explanations of several topics that are often related to the addition of a deck, including safety glazing, stairs, landings, clearances to electrical equipment, fire separation distances, permitting requirements, and much more.
