Codes & Standards Discussion Forum 

Welcome to the ICC Codes & Standards Discussion Forum

The Code Council has revisited how best to provide an online, professional Discussion Forum and area within the website that has a sense of community – where Members and nonmembers can provide input and exchange ideas with their peers in the industry. The new Codes & Standards Discussion Forum does just that, as it allows Registered Website Users and ICC Members to discuss the I-Codes in an online community.

1) Glazing only, no permit required, but IECC requirements must be met. If entire frame is replaced, then a permit is required since inspection for flashing, stucco or siding work, etc. Of course, IECC requirements must be met also.

2) Yes.

Only need permit for structural. Most go by code but no inforcement or permit if only replacing windows.

yes & no..

no.. if it''s not technically feasible.. (like an historic structure).. which we have a few of..

Having said that, historic structures need to go thru the historic department; if the new bigger windows don''t meet the historic criteria (size and appearance), they don''t go in.

Peach - We don''t have any historic structures in Las Vegas... we implode them when the paint gets faded... I''m working on a code change to allow the inclusion of the explosives during initial construction... (kidding).

Pa has an exception for no permit required to replace windows or install siding. All I can do is "advise" regarding egress,glazing,IECC requirements. Now if ya wanna p@@@ me off ask me about Propane. POP

1. No
2. No.

Any structural changes require a permit and egress needs to be met plus smoke detectors.

CT does require a permit for replacement windows and the windows in sleeping rooms are required to meet egress requirements
