Joist Hangers

I have to install joist hangers but the header I am nailing my joist hangers to has 3/4 sheathing on it.. my question is can 3/4 sheathing be between my joist hanger and my header..

Re: Joist Hangers

That's a good question but probably not. Your hanger nails aren't getting the depth penetration they need into the header.. most are in the plywood only.

Re: Joist Hangers

Use same size diameter as required but get ones that are 3/4" longer, be sure and verify this is okay with the manufacturer of the hangers.
