Today I saw this truss, which is a 1/2 truss and resembles a right triangle, that I think may not be anchorded properly. The bottom, ceiling rafter, of this truss spans about 30 feet; and, at the right angle corner (center of the structure) is a steel joist hanger where the truss rests against the beam.
The problem is that the steel hanger is not nailed to the truss but it is nicely nailed to the beam. Of course, if this were the end of the story we know we have a problem. Whats makes this a bit unique is that the end of the truss was ‘toe-nailed’ to the beam. Because the sides of the hanger covers some of the truss I cannot determine if adequate nailing was achieved. To be nailed adequately the joist hangers would have to have been an after thought. What would you recommend?
