Title 24: What is it and Why Does it Matter to You?

title24-l_origYou may never have heard of it, but it is something you should know about. Why? Because you will have to comply with these Title 24 building codes that are in place if you plan to build any new buildings in California, or make any new additions to your home.

According to Rudy Esquivel of JB Wholesale Roofing and Building Supplies Inc. in Pasadena, this regulatory code was put in place to ensure that all new builds are as energy-efficient as they possibly can be. Not only will this help you lower your energy bills, it will also help the planet by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Recent statistics show us that Title 24 compliance may cost you an extra $2,700 in construction costs, but will save over $7,000 in energy and maintenance costs. That’s a pretty big incentive, and over the long haul the Earth saving materials and mindset that put them in place might just be the thing that keeps our planet safe.

By building to these standards, you will also be helping the state of California. If every new property conforms to Title 24, California will have conserved enough energy to power more than two million homes and will no longer have to build as many power plants.

Title 24 not only applies to brand new properties but any new alterations to existing properties. So if you’re looking to extend or significantly change your home, you will have to comply. This video explains more about the new law:

Local city and county code enforcement agencies may be entitled to check that your building complies with this new energy-efficient standard. If all of your materials have come from JB Wholesale Roofing and Building Supplies, you can rest assured that your construction project will pass all of their Title 24 checks.

So when shopping for those all-important building materials, check where they have come from. If it’s JB Wholesale Roofing and Building Supplies, you can carry on knowing that the products used for your construction project will always meet code, and the delays and hassles one can experience during the construction phase won’t be due to improper construction materials.
