Glue Not Enough, Officials Rule

Fox Boston claims its undercover report lead to changes in the Massachusetts Building code that require the ceilings in modular homes to be affixed with more than glue. While the glue may hold fine under normal circumstances, inspectors there claim it can collapse on emergency responders in the event of a fire. According to the report, the Massachusetts Board of Building Regulations and Standards, which sets the state building code, met at the State House and unanimously passed an emergency amendment to the state building code requiring these factory-built homes to also have screws or nails holding up their ceilings? The station says its undercover investigation lead to the changes. The Modular Building Systems Association says it will comply with the new code as of this week.
