Typical Northwest Winter Construction Day


Recommended Posts

I was up on a roof yesterday during a first year inspection when I noticed a crane across the street getting ready to set some trusses. It was a typical northwest winter day, at 1:00 pm it looked like dusk in most parts of the country and there had been a constant light mist coming down all night and all morning that continued through last night and into this morning. I have to wonder how the hell they expect those self-adhering window flashings to work at the sides of those rough openings when the windows haven't even bee installed yet.

For you guys that don't see a lot of OSB and still harp about how it can't possibly hold up, this is a typical wintertime northwest jobsite. Saturday I did a job where the date on the OSB used in the roof plane was 1987.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

Indeed. OSB isn't my favorite product, but water doesn't seem to bother it during construction.
