Nails from roof visible in attic

Peterglass, there is a 2005 supplement, though the IRC and IBC you are under state the same; http://www.reedconstructiondata.com/...s/connecticut/



I wouldn't suggest clipping them for others in a high wind area as it makes easier pull-out (as said) and voids the shingle warranty...
If you are hitting your head on them, Photo #4: http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...bout-diffusion

If any ads are present in my answer above, I do not condone/support/use the product or services listed, they are there against my permission.
