Code Defect Library Description

 The code defect library has been created from a list of the most common technical code defects in each trade. The intent of this information is to assist in the education and clarification of common code defects found on job sites and in the review of plans. PLEASE NOTE: The Code Defect Library currently references the 2002 North Carolina Building Codes. We are in the process of updating the references to the new 2006 North Carolina Building Codes. Your patience is appreciated.
