APA – The Engineered Wood Association has identified the most common framing and sheathing errors their staff sees in wood-frame construction, and has put together a useful online guide to help builders identify and correct these problems. The resource is organized around five categories of frequently asked questions:

  • Why are a building's walls or roof wavy?
  • Why can I feel movement in the floor system? Why does a floor feel "bouncy"?

Each topic area includes a summary solution with helpful links to publications that provide more detailed prevention information.
