Roof Sheathing Nailing Schedules vs. Minimum Code Requirements

General code info as it relates to roof deck attachments on the wind mit form…

What is the reason for posting this? We still have to document anything to help the folks?

In my county, staples were banned in 1993-94 with an amendment to the Standard Building Code. I don’t recall hearing that staples were allowed anywhere in the state shortly after hurricane Andrew.

General information. That’s all.

I known this won’t be useful for many but for some it might be helpful to know what they may see in an attic (depending on the age of the roof/re-roof) when completing a wind mit. But like Bradley points out requirements can vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
