Form OIR-1802 Questin # 4 Clarified

  1. **Roof to Wall Attachment****:** What is the **WEAKEST **roof to wall connection? (Do not include attachment of hip/valley jacks within 5 feet of the inside or outside corner of the roof in determination of WEAKEST type)

For those whom may need clarification about this question see attached marked up roof truss framing diagram

Thanks Mark. Nice diagram and commentary.


I have always found this interesting since most of the studies I have read indicate that the roof edges and corners are the most vulnerable to damage in a high wind event.

That is the for the shingle and decking edges.
