I am using 11/32" thick T1-11 plywood panel from Homedepot (4'x8'x11/32") on exterior walls of one story house. The plywood is nailed to the wood studs of the exterior wall directly. The inspector feels that the plywood is skinny. APA has shear values for 5/16" plywood and my shear loads are below that. I have not seen anybody installing g OSB under the T1-11.
Any idea will be appreciated.
