Starting a new job tommorow that is being framed with wood studs. Does anybody see anything wrong with securing the mc cable with romex staples, rather than 1/4 straps? I dont see anything in the code book, but I guess I am worried about the appearance.
Thanks John

We always use staples for MC on wood.

Why not?
