New House Roof

I am in the process of building a new house. The contractor is planning on using rooftruss at 24 inch o.c and 7/16" OSB sheathing with H clips. Is this a stand roof?

With the h clips it would be above standard for my area. You shouldn't have any problems. HS

That is the norm for my area. The only time you'll need a stouter roof is high snow load areas.

FYI, here in Indiana isn't exactly a 'high snow load' area, but we get our share and 7/16" is standard here as well. 'H' clips are a must though, I hate walking on a roof at 24" centers that doesn't have them. Gives you kindof a bouncy feeling, you know?
