RE: 2000 IBC v 1999 UBC code question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
So..., does that mean under the law in Texas, the builder/contractor is
responsible for all defects?  Is the design professional responsible for
quality control? How does "defects" obtain a definition? Who imposes a
standard of care?

"so basically, ... no code ...?"


This is the code that Davey Crockett fought for at the Alamo.  Also adopting
the IRC is essentially the same as having no building code.

I guess so. As I said before this doesn't really do anything to help the
many, many Texas residents who live outside an unincorporated area. Those
are the folks that I spend so much of my time on, because they don't have
inspection and code administration of any kind and the contractors--who as
you know aren't required to be licensed in Texas--often take advantage of
that fact with p*ss-poor work.

authorities. Correct?
