My roofing nails are for nailing asphalt shingles to roof underlay boards.
I have been using 2.5 inch nails to nail external wall OSBs to the studs. I have been contemplating using the excess roofing nails (I inherited) for nailing the external wall OSBs to the studs.
Will there be any problems? I don't see any problems, except being a waste of money, since the OSBs would be covered by Tyvek. Are roofing nails of lesser shear strength than framing nails?
I am building a house and have decided to use metal roofing, so my roofing nails that someone gave us will be useless.
