attic framing


Recommended Posts

Tell 'em they need to find a competent framer! In the first photo you have poorly cut rafters at a hip-to-ridge joint. While it won't be picture-perfect, that can be repaired with a properly scabbed 2X6 on the rafter that's too short.

Photo #2 is funny...as though liquid nails and Great Stuff foam will hold that mess together! I'm guessing that's the ridge over some intersecting gable such as the garage. That short valley definitely needs repair as it's carrying roof load. And the nails are shot through it right near the ragged edge...not much holding capability there. This guy needs to learn how to cut compound angles...
