The Right Nail for this Framing and Sheathing Plan
I think I have a decent understanding of the various type of nail required but after reviewing the building code (Ontario, Canada) I got a bit intimidated. I suspect I’m nervous a mistake in selecting the wrong nail could be very costly.
I will be using a 30-34 degree framing nailer which can accept 2″- 3″-1/2 nail 0.113″ – 0.131 in either clipped or off-set round head nails. Here is what I had planned to use until doubting myself.
Framing: 3-1/4″ x 0.131 Bright Smooth Shank
Sheathing (OSB): 2″ x .113 – Ring
Is it worth the extra cost to use hot dipper galvanized nails for either framing or sheathing?
