Dave ...............

In KC they tell us there are about 81 municipalities or cities, etc making up the Kansas City metro area. NOT the state JUST the KC metro area.

A year ago the contractors board in KC assembled a brochure showing what codes that the largest 23 municipalities or cities here used.

8 used the 2012 IRC
6 used the 2006 IRC
5 used the 2003 IRC
3 used the 2000 IRC
1 used the 1997 UBC

So what code would the average home inspector reference?
