Significant Changes to the International Residential Code 2006 Edition

Hamid A. Naderi, Doug Thornburg

This easy-to-use guide identifies the significant changes to the minimum regulations for residential building systems that occurred between the 2003 and 2006 editions of the International Residential Code®.

Rather than addressing every code change, the book instead focuses squarely on those provisions that have special significance, are utilized frequently, or have had a change in application so that users can readily identify what changes occurred and why.

A straightforward analysis of the impact of each change on the Code’s application helps familiarize building and fire officials, plans examiners, inspectors, design professionals, and others in the building construction industry with the many important changes to the 2006 International Residential Code.


  • provides a quick and accurate means for identifying and understanding the changes that occurred since the previous edition of the IRC, and fosters an understanding of why the code changed
  • logically organized content follows the general layout of the IRC, with a Table of Contents that allows for quick identification of the significant code changes that occurred in the 2006 Edition
  • most changes are accompanied by a photograph or illustration to further assist and enhance the reader's understanding of the specific change, along with a discussion of the significance of the changes
  • provides the basis for making an easy transition to the new Code, while also serving as a valuable historical reference for years to come in reviewing how and when the code has evolved
  • also a valuable resource for jurisdictions involved in their code adoption process
