I recently had a 26' x 26' standalone garage built, and am concerned by how the siding was hung.
There are about 70-80 nails throughout the garage, poking through the walls about 1 inch. The nails are sometimes directly in the middle of the studs, so no attempt to nail the siding into the studs was made. There are instances of these nails from about 1 foot above the floor all the way up to the ceiling joists.
Is this a common practice? I'm concerned about someone injuring themselves, and I haven't seen this in any other garage I've been in.
Is there a building code that I can reference? If this is a common/o.k. thing to do, what's the best way to cover these nails?
I can provide pictures, if needed.
