Hanger nails come in many sizes for the optimal fastening solutions. Hanger nails are needed for all your framing projects. Hanger nails are used to attach a joist hanger to wood. Hanger nails may vary from project to project. Always use hanger nails that are designed for your project.
Codes Call For Joists
Usually building codes want joists attached with joist hangers at the ledger. This may not be required if they rest on a nearby drop beam and hanger nails are driven through the face of the header into the joists. Attach the hanger to a ledger or a single header using short joist hanger nails. Always use hanger nails instead of other types of nails such as roofing nails. Joist hanger nails are extra strong to provide needed shear strength. Use longer hanger nails to drive through the sides of the hanger. These hanger nails will go at an angle to go through both the joist end and the board it’s being attached to.
