The Association – Committed to Helping Understand Codes and the UCC!!

All of us (homeowners, contractors, elected officials) saw the Uniform Construction Code become reality during 2004. And we learned and are continuing to learn daily how much of it is anything but Uniform! What requires a permit? What requires an inspection? What can I do on my own as a homeowner? These questions and hundreds more have been answered by the Association during these past few years, as the “uniform code” has been amended 9 times!! The Blair / Bedford Builders Association will continue to play the lead role in assuring that its members, the business community, homeowners, property owners and elected officials have access to the most current and factual information about complying with all aspects of the Uniform Construction Code. The Codes that regulate all construction and remodeling were updated to the 2009 edition on January1, 2010.

The Blair / Bedford Builders Association is committed to assisting consumers in the community. We provide a listing of reputable contractors and information on how to handle unresolved complaints.
