Quick question because I rarely come across batten decking where I’m at and want to know what it qualifies for as far as roof deck attachment goes. It’s set up with the clay tiles laying directly onto the batten’s then a thin piece of cardboard-ish paper underneath the battens between the trusses.
The shiners that are showing appear to be 12D nails so the nail isn’t the question, but the actual decking itself is. Would this be considered ‘C’ because it has dimensional lumber? I wouldn’t think so because it should be dimensional lumber that acts as tongue and groove hence the ‘/’ between the two words in the description.
We put E and explained that it doesn’t fit the criteria because it is batten decking spaced 12" on center with one nail through each batten. Obviously, the client isn’t happy but no matter how much i explain it to here she is in a neighborhood of villas and her neighbors all received the credit which is a difference of $500. So did the other inspectors just not know what they were looking at and said whatever and gave her the credit for the nail or am i in the wrong here?
Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you!
