Please keep in mind that the ARCTIC posted a record high 100.4 degree temperature last week!

We can no longer afford to treat our activities that affect the environment as "business as usual."  All industries, including the building industry, must adjust to minimize their impact on further degradation of the environment.  Updating our outdated building codes is key to recognizing the reality we all face.  Yes, this increases upfront costs a bit, but the long term reduction in cost - both to homeowners and to the environment - far outweigh those costs.
