Hey everyone. I had a client ask me what these little metal bars on his roof sheathing were. I have not seen them, and don’t know what purpose they serve.
Looks like a roof truss spacers.
Indeed, truss spacers knocked out of the way when roof sheeting was installed. Perhaps to adjust a truss…
Second question, is the fact that they are not attached anymore a defect?
When the roof sheathing is nailed down, sometimes the edges don’t line up with the trusses. So the spacers are knocked out.
Not a defect, only there to help space the trusses during installation.
Thats what I figured. Thanks so much for the reply guys!
No, it is not a defect.
