I inspected a modular home with what appears to be modified trusses. Workmanship appears to be substandard whereas the hinged truss plate’s teeth were not all in contact/pressed into the wood. Below is what my report reads and consequently, client withdrew his offer. Vendor stated that manufacturer confirmed that the installation is proper. Comments?
Possible Major Concern:* One or more *roof trusses have been altered, sacrificing their integrity. Trusses should not be modified without special engineering of additional support. We recommend you consult an engineer specializing in roof truss design to further evaluate this area, as repairs may be needed.
