This paper aggregates building officials and stakeholder survey responses regarding the history, status, and improvement potential of Texas residential building codes. The respondents’ feedback addressed the impact of the TRCC on residential codes in cities and counties and lessons learned from the TRCC. It also assessed the potential to improve the safety and performance of Texas homes.

Many in the public and private sector are concerned with the ability of the Texas residential built environment to withstand severe weather events and provide minimum life safety and property protection.
