This is first gusset I have found missing. Does this happen frequently?


Call out for structural engineer/roofing contractor?

For some reason I can't see the pic. This is a structural item (not exterior)
Can you post the pic in some other format?

Regards,

You need to have the truss designer supply the fix. Truss fabrication is an involved and very specific process, and many structural engineers don’t want to touch it.

A missing gusset plate is a installation defect. Unless it fell off icon_wink.gif .
