Rafter repair, thought I'd share


Recommended Posts

You would have to take note of the size of the sheathing to determine whether edge support/ H clips were required. Some may argue, but replacing sheathing is a structural modification that should probably have had permits pulled.

That framing looks like crap.

The orginal roof sheathing was CD the replacement was OSB, H-clips were used on original, so I will note it as missing H clips =) I can also push on the osb and make it flex with minimal effort (20 pounds force?)
