Does anyone know what code is regarding felt paper and drip edges? Are these required?

Building codes are minimum requirements and yes, you should be using drip edges.

I see bits and pieces on e-laws. But can't find the whole thing. I am looking for the 1992 edition. The 2006 edition would be too new for mine based on when my purchase agreement was made.

What I found was that it is required, but with a number of exceptions. Probably best to call the Building Inspection people where you live and ask for their interpretation of how this applies to your house, as it appears that distance from roof edge to interior wall, roof slope, degree days, unheated spaces, etc. provide exemptions.mystical2003 wrote: ↑Feb 19th, 2008 12:32 pmThe house is less than a year old. Noticed that their was not even any felt paper when I was taking the christmas lights down this weekend. I thought that at minimum it would be code. In retrospect yes I should have looked into this further with the builder and put drip edges with ice and water shield.
Was hoping someone had an electronic version of the building code and could send me the relevant sections. Or scan and send a hard copy.
Even if someone can confirm what it says in the code I will go buy a copy.
