I am trying to determine what may have caused the rafter crack in a garage rafter. The owners don’t have any idea what may have caused it and the property has been a rental for some time.
I’m thinking someone may have hooked a chain hoist up to the truss and attempted to lift something heavy. . . . or foundation shift. There is a window that is difficult to open and a door out of square with the door frame on the same side of the house as the split rafter.
Any ideas or speculation?
