Test your knowledge of Wisconsin building codes

Join a builder/remodeler, building performance consultant and Wisconsin code expert to discuss the evolution of Wisconsin’s residential construction practices. Throughout the United States energy codes are moving towards higher standards, should Wisconsin follow? With or without code, most agree that high performance homes reduce the operation and maintenance costs for homeowners and building them is good for business. Yet, the question remains, how do we build more of them? Now’s your chance to hear differences in opinion and share yours. From your perspective: What is the role of energy codes? How do we lower the cost of homeownership while improving minimum standards? How do we get more residential contractors to build better? Join us live online to weigh in.
