a roof truss investigation
ROOF TRUSS INVESTIGATION
Per owner request we have completed the
review of the roof trusses that required
shortening, the field built scissor
truss, and the coped floor joists.
The sketches on p. 2 & 3 show the
reinforcement required to ensure adequate
load carrying capacity for the trusses.
Please note that the diagonal drywall
nailers running along the ends of the
trusses are needed for stability, and
remain in place. Drywalling up to these
nailers will provide additional
and it is assumed that this will be done.
The 12" floor joists by manufacturer
that are coped to approximately 8"
one end, have adequate shear capacity.
Published design data has been used to
this. No further reinforcement is
necessary. The stiffeners already
installed are a
strength benefit, and should remain in
