Crawling into an attic the other day and I found seven rafters “scabbed” in order to reach the ridge board! I can’t find anything in the codes about scabbing rafters? Joists, yes, rafters, No. Any information about that anyone?
The entire "new" construction was shoddy. I told the my client that although it was accepted in this county is is not good construction practice.
There were more than enough nails to meet code requirements but boy did it really look bad.
