I was called out to do an engineering evaluation on a modified truss. The home owner had a home inspection done and it was noted in the report as an item to be reviewed by an engineer.
The question I have is how would you note the modified truss? It was very obvious that the trusses were modified to fit the FAU and that a fix had been provided. It was a couple hundred $$ for me to spend less than 10 minutes. It just seemed a bit much to suggest an engineering evaluation rather than just a noting the trusses were modified and repaired.
By the way, these homes were 6 years old and the developer paid for the engineering evaluation. The builder was Barratt American. That is some major customer service!
