Not confuse. Not the deck attachment (nails). Here is the company name: Security First Insurance 1-877-33-9992.
They want Shingles nail attachment. The shingles in this house particular were attached with staples X type. Nothing coming out of the OSB decking.:roll: Not sure if the decking was 3/4 or 5/8 it could have been. This was done 8 weeks ago. If the staples are 3/4 inch and not driven all the way (gun not set right) then they will be flush… A heck of a dilema. I will call the agent./quote
Staples as of March 1st, 2002 are no longer an accepted means of attaching shingles. The attachment must be a minimum 12 gauge shank nail with a minimum 3/8" diameter head, of a length to penetrate through the roofing materials and a minimum of 3/4" into the roof sheathing. Where the roof sheathing is less than 3/4" thick, the fasteners shall penetrate the sheathing.
From the provided information it would appear that the roof covering would not meet the requirement of the 2001 building code and the underwritter has picked up on that
