Framing inspection failed due to roof


The plywood isnt the issue its the moronic move to forget clips. Get his a-- back to fix it.

Dont just let him rig the clips in, those sheets need gaps all the way around.

Framing inspection failed due to roof


Welp, the conclusion is that the county inspector admitted that he erred in requiring blocking on the 7/16" sheathing for the roof (24 OC), since it was rated 24/16 - therefore, edge supports are not required according to the state code.

The county inspector's supervisor indicated that not having the 1/8' spacing would not cause the garage to fail framing inspection by itself.

The tech support rep of the shingle manufacturer said that not having the 1/8" spacing in the roof sheathing would not by itself cause the roof to leak, and if anything, would result in only cosmetic issues with being able to see the sheathing edges through the shingles.

Hard to force a contractor to fix something (sheathing spacing) where both the supervisory county inspector and shingle manufacturer claim it's not broke.

Hopefully this will present no issue in the 3 more years I expect to own this house.

Well I guess this is a good example of how some contractors really do know more than the so called knowledgable building inspectors.

As a few others pointed out, OSB requires 1/8" gap between sheets for proper installation, not suggests- if ink stamped on EACH sheet (sized for spacing); http://osbguide.tecotested.com/pdfs/en/el812.pdf

Contact the manufacturer of the OSB to check, and get it in writing from the contractor against future problems.

Have you looked at the IRC? If the panel is an APA rated panel the 24 means 24 inches OC support for roof, 16 inches OC for floor. The clips are for spacing the sheathing. All sheathing requires spacing, both Plywood and OSB. The clips do little to nothing for support. Check the code, or I will if you let me know where you live.

Why didnt your contractor know the code? this is for his account, in my opinion.

Sorry I did not see the post above. I was pretty sure that inspector was wrong though, as soon as I saw the 24/16
