Re: Roof Nailing
Around here, inspectors REQUIRE the roofing nails to fully penetrate the sheathing. I think that's so they can see that they are long enough.
It sure is annoying when you have to work in the attic and you scratch your head on protruding nails.
It seems like nailguns result in less cracking than hand-nailing.

The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
