Use this 3 part SimpleSpecs™ master specification to specify miscellaneous carpentry items including blocking, nailers, grounds, furring, and roof curbs.
The wood used on the interior of non-wood-framed structures may need to be fire-retardant treated; verify with the applicable building code.
The wood used in contact with concrete, masonry, or roofing, and wood exposed to weather should be preservative treated.
Some treatment chemicals can cause corrosion of metal fasteners. The use of stainless steel fasteners or fasteners with heavy galvanized coatings can reduce the possibility of corrosion.
