We always meet or exceed the building code standards specific to your industry, including the food processing industry which has notoriously stringent requirements.

Roofing Codes for Older Commercial Buildings

When working on older buildings it’s important to know which building code was in use at the time of construction.

In some cases, local building codes require an older building’s roof to be evaluated against the current building code if reroofing or remodeling reaches a certain threshold.

Whether you need a brand new flat roof system or a replacement roof for an older building, U.S. Roofing is your best bet. No other roofer can match our low overhead and industry expertise.

How Wisconsin Commercial Building Code Works

Building codes define strict performance requirements that include roofing systems.

State and local government agencies establish and enforce building codes to protect the public safety, as well as the health and well-being of people using commercial and industrial buildings.

Nationwide, most jurisdictions adopt codes created and maintained by international model code groups including the ICC (International Code Council), IBC (International Building Code), IECC (International Energy Conservation Code) and others.

The current Wisconsin commercial building code is based on the IBC.
