I'm having a garage built without drywall. There are a lot of nails protruding from the inside of the OSB board. i.e. Lots of missed nail-gun nails. Is there any code or requirement for these nails sticking out beside very poor workmanship? And what is the best way to cut them off without disturbing the sheathing or wrap?
A small pair of bolt cutters 18-24" will do the job and last for years. I hate it when I miss it happens But I usually can feel it in the gun and adjust. After checking I usually snip the nails. If ring shank this is the best thing to do as pulling will tear up the siding. Code requires the nails to be in the studs but really says nothing about misses in my state. Look on the outside where there are a misses there should be a nail just to the side into the stud if not the siding may not be attached property.
