Should the 3” x 3” washers specified for shear wall anchorage be corrosion resistant?

For interior usage where washers are used on untreated wood, corrosion resistant hardware is generally not required. If the hardware is in contact with preservative treated wood, corrosion resistant hardware may be required. Consult with the supplier of treated wood to determine if they recommend corrosion resistant hardware with their product.
