RE: nails in withdrawal to resist wind uplift?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] None of which I know. But directionality is important. Nails parallel with the grain of the wood aren't worth anything (which is commonly done in walls in platform construction). But you can get value for a toenailed stud to top plate connection.

Is there anything in the IBC or NDS or anywhere that says nails in withdrawal
shall not be used for wind uplift?
