In an attic of a 1952 home, I found this ridge. It looks pretty thin and does not cover the full width of the rafters. What are your thoughts. I don’t want to write it up and look like an idiot later.
The ridge thickness does not matter if rafters align on either side. While the proper practice is to have a ridge that fully supports the plumb cuts in the rafters I would not write it up unless there was visible splitting in the rafters along the ridge. The house is 70 years old, why would it need to be ‘fixed’ now.
What he said.
Thanks all of you. I appreciate it.
