Is there a required overlap on a joint in a ridge board? The board has been sistered on both sides between the rafters, but is uneven and only about 3-4 inches on one side. Any problem?
How old was the home.
Newest codes say its a no no, but should be fine for older stuff. Most butt joints are sandwiched between rafters, instead of off to one side. As long as all else looks good it should be fine.
The structural significance is minimal. The primary purpose of a ridge board (not to be confused with a ridge beam) is to provide something to nail the top of the rafter to during assembly.
Thanks guys. That’s what I thought but wanted to make sure.
