Actually Harry is not wrong but he is also not right.
All respondents to your question are completely wrong. And no, everyone in the HVHZ did not get screwed. The only acceptable wualification for a credit is either a building code date that falls within hte requirements, or a product approval number that is verifiable.
Actually Harry is not wrong but he is also not right. Every respondent to the question is however completely wrong. Harry I hope this reaches you. Here is the intent, a Roof Covering can Qualify for either A or B regardless of location in the state. There are at least 7 ways a roof can qualify:
A re-roofing permit application date after 3/1/2002 (Meets A); OR
(for the HVHZ only) a re-roofing permit application date after 9/1/1994 and before 3/1/2002 (Meets B); OR
A verifiable MDC or FBC Product approval that was current at time of installation (for original or re-roofs). Verifiable means that you have provided documentation that specifically identifies the manufacturer/model of the roof covering and date of installation to provide evidence that the product approval number is valid (Meets A or B depending on the structures year built); OR
Or the home was built in 2002 or 2003, the roof covering is original, and you have provided a permit application date for the building after 3/1/2002 (Meets A); OR
The home was built in 2004 or later, the roof is original and has not been replaced (if the roof is not original go back to step 1, 2 and 3) (Meets A); OR
The home is located in the HVHZ between 1994 and 1996, the roof is original, and you have provided a permit application date for the construction of the home that is after 9/1/1994 (if the roof is not original go back to step 1, 2 and 3) (Meets B); OR
The home is in the HVHZ, built in 1997 or later, and the roof is original (if the roof is not original go back to step 1, 2 and 3) (Meets B).
So, if Harry had provided a MDC product approval number that was current at time the home was built, even outside the HVHZ, and had also provided documentation of the manufacturer/model to qualify the use of the product approval number the agent would be in fact wrong, and he would be correct. You can use B outside the HVHZ and that is the intent of hte first part of the answer. The only time you can’t use B outside the HVHZ is when you are relying on the construction dates and have no other verifiable documentation of a product approval number. Then C or D are your only possible answers. So for Harry’s area, the only time he can use the building code date is:
The roof is original and has not been replaced, AND
The home was constructed with a permit application date after 3/1/2002
I am not sure what NACHI is teaching in their course, I do know the Bill York Consulting course is teaching this part correctly. I did have a consolation with John on this topic before he began teaching his course.
