First off, let me say that this is my first time framing a roof. The roof is a 12/12 pitch and I am doing a simple rafter and joist framing.
I am going to install the rafters soon. When I looked at the different type of hurricane clips (h-clips) there were two different kinds. The first one – lets call it type “A” for discussion sake – worked with a brids-mouth cut into the rafter. H-clip type “B” is designed in such a way so that the rafter didn’t need a birds-mouth cut into it.
Does anyone have any experience or information about the type “B” hurrican clip? If I didn’t need to cut birds-mouths, I could save a lot of time and frustration.
Thanks in advance,
