OMG! Another beam repair with the customary “Tail Light Guarantee”
This is a load-bearing roof beam on a mid-century modern home. The beam is exposed on the interior and spans from, and is framed into, opposing exterior walls. The cantilevered end supports the eave framing, with rafters and bridging traveling along it’s length (vaulted ceilings inside). In the original construction, the projection of the beam beyond the roof edge was six inches. This was indeed an attempt at a dryrot repair.
I cringe at the thought of two or three roofers gathering in this area of the deck, unaware of the lack of support below…
I imagine this work was accompanied by the customary tail-light guarantee…
