Code Upgrades for New Build

How do you distinguish code upgrades for what is essentially a new build? A builder wouldn’t do a new build to outdated codes, so how would they price out what would essentially be a downgrade?

They just need to document it – i.e., your original home had single-pane windows, new code requires double pane (cost difference between the two); the difference in insulation, etc.
