8D Nail Requirements in the HVHZ ( Miami Dade & Broward) County

The use of 8d nails in South Florida's High-Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) is typically mandated by local building codes and regulations. These codes are put in place to enhance the structural integrity and resilience of buildings in areas prone to hurricanes and high winds.

The use of 8d nails instead of 6d nails in high-wind or hurricane-prone areas is primarily driven by the need for increased structural strength and resilience in building construction. These nails are typically longer and stronger than standard nails, providing better resistance to pull-out forces and ensuring that roofing materials, walls, and other structural components remain securely fastened during a storm. all content of this blog are copyright protected ©
