Wind Mitigation Class Question

I’m taking the Wind Mitigation class. I don’t understand the following: The gap is greater than 1/2-inch though embedded in the bond beam, with less than a 1/2-inch gap from the blocking or truss-rafter and blocked no more than 1 and 1/2 inches of the truss/rafter. I just don’t see it in pictures. Does anyone have a picture with an arrow pointing to the gaps whether they’re correct or not?

This should be posted in the (dedicated) Florida Section. No other state gives a crap about wind mits.

Ok where’s that

Also what does the five units mean? “If the roof is on a building with **five (5) or more units”……

Look in the Categtory Index.

Jeffrey I believe she is in the Florida Category


No clue, I don’t concern myself with Florida Wind Mit terms, thus why you need to go to the Florida Section where they use this stuff daily!

Actually, I do know what it means in Minnesota, but I won’t speak for a Florida State situation.

Five units means a multi family building. Five separate apartments.

I moved it into Florida category and it didn’t work. I didn’t know about that until someone mentioned it and I can’t delete this post.

I was looking through past discussions and didn’t see that until now. Thanks. Case is closed.

Letting you know that it did work, it is in the Florida section now. Unfortunately I’m not able to give you the answer you’re looking for. And also just ignore Jeffrey, he gets like that sometimes.

That certainly isn’t my fault now, is it?

Yes, it did work, as Les, a Florida CMI, has provided her with everything she needs to know.

You’re welcome!!

Hopefully this will help you understand

It is the distance from the strap, where it is embedded in the concrete, to the truss. It should be no more than 1/2 an inch. Attached the strap spacing was more than 3 inches which allows for updraft to lift the truss.


Thank you so much. I understand. This is what I was looking for. :slight_smile:

Take Class with FABI…

Thank you Matt. You have to have 100 inspections at least to join correct? Unfortunately we do not.
