Came accross this scenerio in the field on Friday.
I looked at a run of about 12 nonwrap straps on this home. They all were positioned with in a 1/2 of the truss and all had three nails. However take a look at the middle nail on this one particular non-wrap strap.
Would this still be considered a “clip” even though the second nail is not driven all the way through?
What do you think a re-inspector would say?:mrgreen:
If it was the only one, I’d instruct the homeowner to have it nailed in properly.
The other issue, is that the nail appears, and I blew the picture up as big as I could,to be dead center of the joint where the two chords meet and may not be in the wood.
In that event, as there is an unused hole above that nail, I’d put a nail in there and call it a day.
A suggestion to everyone who are positing these “what would you call it questions”, post pictures of both sides of the truss.
I probably should have prefaced that by saying not all QA inspectors are bad.
There are good ones and there are bad ones.
We have actually been requested to complete these inspections for homeowner’s who had an original inspection done and then a QA completed.
I’m not 100% sure but I believe the homeowner has the option to have a third inspection done as long as the provider is not the orginal or QA inspecting company. Then the data from all three are compared.
