ECONOMIC IMPACT OF THE IPC
THE IPC IMPROVES HOUSING AFFORDABILITY
On average, a single-family home could save up to $4,000 in labor, materials and overhead built under the IPC compared to other plumbing codes.
Approximately 168 million people live in a state that has adopted the IPC.
Counties that applied the IPC:
Saved $38 billion in construction costs
Emitted 1 million fewer tons of CO
Realized 166,000 more jobs
Saved 880 million feet of pipe
It's your money
In 2M+ homes constructed in states without the IPC, over $1 billion in additional labor, materials and overhead costs were passed on to renters and homeowners.
