    Sheathing my house roof today. Man today is going to be brutal. Dude it only would have taken an extra 15 minutes to hit those sheets with the nail gun. On another note I hate how the wet weather always shows up when I'm working with osb

    Dude: Did you leave 1/8 inch space between sheets for thermal and moisture expansion? Probably not.

    OSB sucks. Never use OSB!

    Depending where you are plywood clips are code required. But should always be used regardless. As a guy who has layed more than a few bunks of plywood I highly recommend you don't use the cheapest tin clips as it slows down the laying when you have to bend them open to fit your plywood. Spend the extra $15 dollars and get your plywood down without headaches!

    Dude just cut around the sheets, the saw blade is enough to relieve the stress, always try to nail and cover any exposed sheething, plywood swells just as bad, and dont blame others, everyone should have helped nail the sheets

    Don't get son wet at all, but plyood,tongue n groove for floors and it should be code for roofs, 3/4 " tongue n groove ,glue and screw. So your house doesn't squeek

    That is what happens when you get your DRINKING BUDDIES to come over and help. The boards on my house are ninety-seven years old and still good. I don't think that this man's OSB will last ninety-seven MONTHS, never mind ninety-seven YEARS ! !

    You felt you needed to make a video about these issues? This is information a complete amateur would already know.

    Soaking wet OSB? = Shot OSB that will fail with the oatmeal effect in time no matter what you do to (You think) fix it. If it got that wet for that long the only fix is to replace it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in that home.

    Always H clips
    And looks like in video you ran seam on seam.
    It has to be staggered.
    And never leave it exposed to rain.
    Even a tarp would work. Tar paper or there’s other products you can use.
    But 10000% to ya. Most wont show a video of a oops or dam we made a boo boo.
    We all make them. I been in the field 30yrs plus and still make dumb mistakes. Nothing big but shit happens.

    Meh. I thought this video was gonna be useful. The point of the video is do the work how it supposed to be done not how it’s not supposed to be done. Nothing wrong with using osb if your work is good.

    You'll never get rid of the mold.
    Burn that POS.

  • trick noon 3 weeks ago

    Your giving lessons and you didn't tar paper the day you put the sheathing on not to smart it would have taken a half hour

  • buddybeetle 3 weeks ago

    Screw them down, not nail. And don't get them wet.

  • Vince Diesel 3 weeks ago

    I think the problem is poor planning. Three-quarter inch tongue and groove on the floor is specified to leave an 8th inch gap. But half-inch OSB on the roof should be butt tightly. Can you say tarp?

    You need to change the orientation of the panel where the opening is…

    Never use cheap materials , definitely don't leave anything exposed to weather . I was nailing my last shingle one time December 5th at 10pm in the moon light and it was just starting to snow . Never leave anything exposed !
