In response to the statement issued by Weyerhaeuser regarding affected floor joists, Broomfield staff is currently working with area builders to identify Broomfield homes which have a Weyerhaeuser floor joist manufactured between December 2016 and July 1, 2017.  

A majority of those affected homes are new construction and are unoccupied.  Occupied homes with this floor joist have been contacted by their home builders. Broomfield will continue to work with area home builders to ensure that all affected residents are contacted by their home builder.  Homeowners should contact their home builder or Weyerhaeuser for questions or to discuss remediation.   


Will Broomfield Inspectors be performing testing to determine if the joists include the formaldehyde-based resin? 

     No. Homeowners should contact their home builder or a third party inspector to pursue testing.  

Where can I find out more about the Weyerhaeuser floor joists? 

   Read the press release here or visit 

Will you release the names and addresses of the affected homes? 

   No. Homeowners were contacted directly by the home builders.  

Reminder to all Builders!!

  • We have now adopted the 2015 IBC/IRC Building Codes. Any new residential house or new commercial projects will need to be submitted under the 2015 codes.
  • The state of Colorado has stated that it will adopt the NEC 2017 code as of July 1st, 2017. The City and County of Broomfield will adopt and enforce the NEC 2017 as of July 1st, 2017. The updated codes will be required to be followed on permits based on the issuance date and not the application date. All approved master plans for builders will need to be updated and resubmitted to the building division. Please see more information.
