Chris Bernhardt Posted March 2, 2007 Report Share Posted March 2, 2007 Did an inspection on an older house with several additions. In one of the additions there are 2"x4" trusses that were stapled and also had metal plate connectors added but the stapling is sloppy and its obvious that the plates were hand hammered on and look like hell. The chords just don't look like they have sound connections. If it was my house I would fix them but should it be concluded that its a deficiency if there is no failure yet? The trusses are probably 20 years old. Chris, Oregon Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
