Home Projects: Fixing A Truss
I hate to say that I didn't get any pictures of this. In the old '35 house we are redoing, there was one truss in particular that was split, viewable from inside the attic. Now there was no sagging in the roof or anything, but we needed to repair it. So my son-in-law and I got in the attic to sister two 2X4s together on the outside of the broken beam. This wasn't easy, as he had to lay on his back pushing upwards on the broken and new wood while I put twelve 4 and 3/4 screws in place. Either way, it's fixed and ready for longer and stronger life.
