As a shear wall or roof nailing inspector, it is our duty to inspect that work is installed per approved plans and specifications with the correct nail sizes, nail spacings, wood sheathing lengths, wood sheathing sizes, wood sheathing thicknesses, anchor bolt hold downs, nailing plates (such as LTP5 clips or A35 clips), straps, tie downs, etc. We know that all nailing requirements can be different for each shear wall on a specific project varying on what floor level it is located on. A deputy special inspector is required by the California Building code to verify all shear wall installations where the necessary nail spacing is 4” on center or less. Any nail spacing that exceeds 4” typically does not require deputy special inspection.
For any arranged shear wall nailing inspections, we recommend that nailing work should be installed prior to our arrival in order for work to be efficient and effective without wasting time and money to the client. The reason being is because nailing inspection is periodic which means a deputy inspector does not need to be on site for the actual installation. Verification of nail spacings and related materials to shear wall or roof inspection is only needed for the final product prior to covering or closing the exterior shear walls. Any unnecessary waiting can and will be charged to the client if time exceeds our minimum.
What exactly is a shear wall and why is it important? In wood framing construction, a shear wall assembly is an important portion to constructing a structurally sound building. A typical wall can provide concealment, support for a roof, support for a floor above or support for a ceiling. A shear wall on the other hand can have these same features but also have a different purpose in which its main function is to counteract bending or torsional forces caused by earthquakes, wind loads or other severe weather like dangers. These effects can lead to serious devastation or even potential catastrophe of a building’s structure if there is faulty work implemented on these essential structures. That is why it is important to hire us at Deputy Special Inspections Mission Viejo to verify the work being installed is accomplished per the approved set of structural plans and specifications.
