I need some information on these rafters. Home was built in 1945 and this addition over the garage was added in the 50s (according to agent). I’m questioning the rafters on the right in the photos. This area is over the garage addition. The rafters are larger than the ridge beam. It is a low sloped roof. My thinking is these rafters should be supported better. I was unable to get a closer look to see how they are connected to the ridge beam. Any input would be appreciated.
IRC requires that the rafters be no larger than the ridge beam…but…at the 50 year point, in the absence of any other indicators of trouble, I would mention it as a condition that would only have to be addressed if future modifications were being considered for the garage.
Thanks for the reply. No adverse conditions were noted, I will note that I saw it.
