How do you guys (and gals) deal with field repairs to pre-engineered roof trusses? Many times they are cracked when they are gently removed from the truck and the builder sisters on 2X4’s on each side. I call for the buyer to review the Repair Truss Design Drawing (RTDD) from the manufacturer or an engineer. Too picky or not? After reading this forum for a while, I think I know how you’ll answer but inspectors (not me) in this area try not to be “alarmists”. BTW Where do you fall in the spectrum between full reporting and just listing what’s broken?
