Anyone have any written requirements for the removal of decking nails used in OSB decking that do not make contact with the trusses they are intended to be driven into?
I have been told that over time wind, heat, and cold cycles cause the nails to withdraw causing possible roof shingle leakage. Any info?? [email protected]
As far as i know, Nails comming back out are common even if the did in fact contact the truss. Older house after time these nails become lose and start its way backup causing tears in the paper which eventually leads to leaks makes no diffence if its CDX or OSB. The best nail I find to use on roofs are shanked nails they tend to never back out and never easy to take out at all.
