    Default rafter hangers

    Beach front new construction. Found rafters separating from wall. Recommending to install rafter hangers but can't seem to find code ref. Any comments?

    Texas Department of Insurance should govern new construction on the coast. Hangers should have been there to start with to deal with uplift and shear forces.

    Having inspected the SE Texas market for many years before moving to the Dallas area ... I had to keep in mind just 'where' the home I was inspecting was located.

    As noted ... there are a lot of different and additional items to look for from the Gulf of Mexico beach inland. Varying degrees of "inland wind" ratings/requirements.

    IRC won't necessarily have it ... local AHJ and TDI trumps many things due to high winds.

    For example even the roll-up garage doors installed in Spring would not pass requirements in Kemah or League City.
