NAILS VS SCREWS USED IN HURRICANE MITIGATION CLIPS
For just Florida Hurricane only discussion: what screw is equivalent to whatever nail (#8 – 1.5″ nail) is used in the Hurricane Mitigation roof truss to wall single clip (just the 90 deg simple clip). ; I would think it would be just the same #8 – 1.5″: screw . Thanks.
Background : Rehabbing house and see opportunity to make it more hurricane durable. Hoping this would reduce insurance costs by adding clips now that walls are exposed and its easy to do. I want to use screws because we think they grip better and that they also are easier for tight spaces to use a power screwdriver versus a hammer.
Don’t talk about tornadoes please,,thanks.
