In the past I have noticed some discussion about the use wood screws in framing. While watching a “This Old House” episode, The prefab panels were being anchored to the sole plates with screws and the panels were being fastened together with what look like 12′ long screws.
A lot has been said about the lack of information about the shear strength of screws vs. nails. If I remember correctly, Piffin or the Boss are not a fan of screws. At least, not of drywall screws. Any comments?
