Can anybody point me to the table that specifies how many fasteners are required connecting roof rafters to ridge board. I’ve looked through R802, but can’t find it. I see the table for rafters to ceiling joists, but not rafters to ridge.
The only thing I see is R802.3 Framing Details: Rafters shall be framed to ridge board … with a gusset plate…
But I’ve seen plenty of conventional framed / stick-built roofs that don’t use gusset plates.
What am I missing?
Background: Today’s inspection had only 4 nails connecting 2x12 rafters to ridge, which doesn’t appear to be enough nails.
Disclaimer: Yes-I know we don’t do code inspections, but I would like to have the code reference for this issue.
