    Default Best way to repair a roof truss

    Hey, just had the house inspected and they found this:



    What is the best way to repair? Do I need to put a sister board the whole length or just screw another board on from about 4' on either side of the crack?

    Thanks.

    Nothing like slipping in a little advertisement in your post. Wonder if he owns Oklahoma Roofing Co.?

    What do you think 20% of his portfolio is in ( Oklahoma's Roofing Company. )


    It almost sounds like the original post was a set up for ( Oklahoma's Roofing Company. )


    Best

    If you can find the name of the truss manufacturer then you can contact them and they will give you a proper repair that is approved by them. This is really what you need. It should be a fairly simple repair.

    If we are just going by the picture above, then you probably have a better understanding of what steps should be taken to properly repair the truss. And I agree with contacting the manufacturer (if available). The roof trusses may have been built on site.
