This home is truss roof construction, two story, 2 years old - in the attic at the hip ridge, one of the 2x4 ‘short member lateral restraints’ (?? ) was short, and another was sistered to it. The longer one is still too short to reach the truss, and leaves an open gap of 1/2"-3/4" with the nails showing between the two boards.
Should this be called for further nailing? remove and install longer sister board?
It’s just a block providing backing for the roof sheathing at the hip, it’s not part of an actual truss. Sheathing will span that little gap no problem.
You will waste someone’s money of you recommend a SE. It’s sloppy, but it’s sloppy with a minor framing member which will have little effect on the structural integrity of the home.
If it really bothers someone, they can have a carpenter remove the lower block and replace it with one nailed effectively.
Not a big deal. I wouldn’t put it in the report.
