Cut Rafters

Recommended Posts

Is there a reason why a framing carpenter would do this other than they ran out of long pieces of lumber?  The roofs were sagging at these locations.

  • Inept contractor.
  • 'I couldn't install any ridge supports because there wasn't a load-bearing wall below it'.
  • 'Homeowner didn't want to pay enough to do it right.'
  • Speeds up the job.  Homeowner won't know it's wrong until I'm out the door with the check.

Here is and another example of the same although this makes more sense as the rafters are downsized. It is a 30-year-old house and there was no noticeable sag.
