New nail out by Bostitch, been around for a little bit but hasnt really gotten too much attention yet.
Cost over regular nails? About $15 more for a 2,000 sq ft house … anyone looking to build, should talk to their contractor about using these nails.
it really doesn’t matter, if the house was built before any of the most recent codes changes (Since Hurricane Andrew), it would most likely fail if strong enough winds were present.
But hey, $15 is chump change if your building a new house.
