Exterior OSB thickness

729 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Gary in WA
My local code list 3/8 or 1/2 inch OSB on 16" OC studs for exterior walls. I am ready to hang 7/16" OSB thinking it falls in-between the sizes listed somewhat. Before I put nail to OSB, would 7/16" work? I am in Virginia, my county goes by state code. Thanks for any advice.

I think you will find those 7/16" OSB panels have something on them that say something about being equal to 1/2".
