Garage door is likely N or X. I do not know of any rated door that use wood bracing. It rots and could possibly loose its strength over time.
However, what I think is irrelevant. Is there a rating decal on the door? Is there a brand name? If so, look up on the State website or Approval-zoom and determine if it is rated. If it is impact rated its an A. Windload only, D. Neither, X. If you can’t find any info and it may be Impact, N.
In my humble opinion, N or X without additional documentation.
Your HI license # is the one you use. Type : Home Inspector. License #: HIXXXXXX
Check the box for license HI under Qualified Inspectors. Add the certificate from your Wind Mit training to ALL WIND MITS!!!
Good luck & I recommend you find a kind soul to let you do a few ride alongs with.
The door is not rated.
Be very careful with the “Miami Dade” thing. I have seen many windows and sky lights that had that and were not hurricane rated.
Get the make and mmodel numbers and look them up here: Legal Zoom
License type: HI .
Go to the last page of this: Magnum wm
That is what you should have. If you don’t, send me a jpeg of your license and wm cert and I will do it for you.
If you want someone to ride with you, give me a call and I will next week as I am laid up for a while.
Thanks for the well wishes…I think… :mrgreen: I agree with you on most things John and consider you an expert on wind mitigation inspections.
I may disagree with you on occasion, but still consider you a valuable asset, not only to myself, but to all in the home inspection industry.
And now that the kissing and flowers are over with…what is a shiner? :mrgreen:
Some roofers used nickles others, like the one I worked for, used a nail tapped into the truss, another nail 8 feet away in the truss, and one in the middle hanging down in the space between the rafters to make sure the plywood was spaced properly as it states, in big blue ink, on the plywood itself. My job was to pull those nails out.
The so-called shiners of today are code violations. I dare anyone to contact a AHJ and have them dispute it in writing.
The issue I have, and no one caught it in the picture below, was that the method of determining the nailing pattern is flawed.
This roof was renailed , however, if you look at the pictures, some of those nails are not 8D nails. Is this roof nailed 6 inches apart with 8D nails?
As I am training for the Tower of Terror 10 mile race, the 13.2 Wine and Dine Half marathon race, and a26 mile race In January, the injury occurred 2 Saturdays ago when while walking in between running, I felt a “snap” in my foot. I completed the 8 mile loop and then came home and iced down my foot. I went on the internet and determined that I damaged my planter faciatis and rest was in order. As I am 52 and my body has been through numerous traumas, my wife suggested I see a foot doctor just to be sure.
As it turns out, I broke a bone spur, which has partially grown back, two weeks ago. Somewhere down the road, I will have to have some sort of surgery to correct it.
This weekend, I am putting on a golf tournament in Sebring which is four days and three nights of golf and drinking. This is the 18th year I have put on this event. Broken foot or not, I will be in attendance.
As the doctor didn’t see fit to prescribe some sort of pain medication, I have chosen a method that has worked for me in the past! :mrgreen:
Mark this Garage Door as “X”. This appears to be an aftermarket brace kit. Raynor Garage doors did use 2x4 blocking in thier Miami Dade approved door back in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s.
For the Form: You put your Florida State License number on the form and will need to attach a certificate of course completion (CILB Approved 3 hr OIR B1-1802 training) to the bottom of each form you send in to avoid having them kicked back to the agent for this information.
You are going to have to have the homeowner either produce the documentation or go to CC city hall and get a hard copy of the permit. There should be documentation there. I couldn’t find the company listed anywhere in a short search.
Until then,N or X.
We are staying at Spring lake Golf and Tennis. Saturday night we will be at the Watering Hole or the Last Resort, I can’t recall what they call it now, but it was the place that had the large alligator inside. It is actually a “nice” establishment now,or at least it was last year.
