Content DescriptionThe scope of this standard is to specify prescriptive methods to provide wind resistant designs and construction details for residential buildings of masonry, concrete, wood-framed or cold-formed steel framed construction sited in high- wind regions where design wind speeds are 120 to 180 mph. The purpose of this standard is to improve building resiliency by providing prescriptive requirements based on the latest engineering knowledge and to provide minimum requirements to improve structural integrity and improve building envelope performance within the limitations in building geometry, materials, and wind climate specified. The 2014 edition includes: â€¢ Updated design wind speed map to align with the ASCE 7-10, 2015 IBCÂ® and 2015 IRCÂ® provisions. The wind speeds are ultimate design wind speeds (Vult) but the design loads and pressures in the standard are nominal (ASD) design loads. â€¢ New provision that storm shelters be designed and constructed in accordance with ICC 500: ICC/NSSA Standard for the Design and Construction of Storm Shelters. â€¢ New alternative fastening of roof sheathing utilizing prescriptive ring-shank nails that have a higher withdrawal capacity than common nails. â€¢ New prescriptive provisions for using self-adhering underlayment to create a â€œsealed roof deckâ€ to prevent water intrusion. â€¢ Updated the design wind load pressure for garage doors to include door width up to 20 feet. â€¢ New prescriptive provisions for soffits. â€¢ New prescriptive provisions for vinyl siding installed over foam plastic sheathing. â€¢ New prescriptive provision for foam plastic sheathing.

The International Code Council is a member-focused association dedicated to helping the building safety community and construction industry provide safe, sustainable and affordable construction through the development of codes and standards used in the design, build and compliance process. Most U.S. communities and many global markets choose the International Codes. The International Codes, or I-Codes, published by ICC, provide minimum safeguards for people at home, at school and in the workplace. The I-Codes are a complete set of comprehensive, coordinated building safety and fire prevention codes. Building codes benefit public safety and support the industry’s need for one set of codes without regional limitations. Fifty states and the District of Columbia have adopted the I-Codes at the state or jurisdictional level. Federal agencies including the Architect of the Capitol, General Services Administration, National Park Service, Department of State, U.S. Forest Service and the Veterans Administration also enforce the I-Codes. The Department of Defense references the International Building Code for constructing military facilities, including those that house U.S. troops, domestically and abroad. Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands enforce one or more of the I-Codes. The International Code Council (ICC) is a nonprofit membership association dedicated to protecting the health, safety, and welfare of people by creating better buildings and safer communities. The mission of ICC is to provide the highest quality codes, standards, products and services for all concerned with the safety and performance of the built environment. ICC is the publisher of the family of the International Codes® (I-Codes®), a single set of comprehensive and coordinated model codes. This unified approach to building codes enhances safety, efficiency and affordability in the construction of buildings.
