2 Questions on OSB for a shed floor please

Postby ohdearme » Mon Sep 14, 2020 10:12 am

I have decided on OSB to make my shed floor.
What nails or screws should I use to fix it to the timber floor joists?
I have some bitumen for the edges I will be cutting but what do you think I should use on the top and underside?

Hi ohdearme
Forget the osb and use sheathing/flooring ply. Fix down with decking screws.
