Questions & Answers


is it necessary to fill every nail hole when installing?

Asked by honeyB November 16, 2018

In Idaho we currently use IRC 2012 building code. Section R602.3.2 under exception "A single top plate may be installed ... minimum 3-inch by 6-inch by a .036-inch thick galvanized steel plate that is nailed to each wall or segment of wall by six 8d nails on each side ..." .036 is 20 gauge so the answer would be no its not necessary. That being said this is one specific case more or less nails may be needed depending on the application. Unless you pre-drill I don't believe filling all the holes would be smart or useful.

The holes for the 9 size screws were for nails...
The holes for the 9 size screws were for nails only .I need it so I took quite long time to predrills the holes out . and it took 3 weeks to get two plates and found out they had to be drill out for the screws. All tie plats I use come to fit nails or screws.

I used the plates to join 2 pieces of wood together. Seems to work good.
