Back to the fountain of knowledge.  I looked at the questions already posed on this topic but they mostly deal with after the OSB has been installed and then gotten wet.  My OSB (23/32 TG) is still banded on the job site. It's rained on and off for the last few days and we're expecting a few more days like that. My question is can I go ahead and use it on the subfloor or should I wait? If I did install it then I'm sure it would see a few more days of rain before it ever saw a roof.


A bit of water will only hurt it very superficially....if there's ponding, drill holes to let the water escape...hopefully you have it tarped and bone dry til install....

Well, no. It's still banded so the top couple of sheets and maybe the edges got wet in today's rain storm. The question is should I glue it and screw it tomorrow?
