Our nation excels because we have the world’s most productive, creative, and innovative private sector. When we develop products and practices that improve building safety and put thousands of dollars into the wallets of homeowners, it is critical that these developments are updated in building codes and standards. That way, building inspectors remain familiar with new technologies, and citizens and businesses can benefit from the energy savings they bring.
