This is from todays inspection. The house was built in 1982. Notice the mending plates that are not attached to anything? I am no “seasoned inspector”, but I have never seen this before. Any ideas on why these would be on the trusses not functioning for anything?? They don’t appear to have ever been attached to any lumber at all (no wood debris on them).Everything else seemed to look fine, but I can’t figure why these would be here?
Your help/opinions are eppreciated!
