We are buying a different home.
The inspector has pictures inside the attic where he feels the Hip roof needs more reinforcement to the ceiling joists.
Maybe it was done incorrectly?, but one ceiling joist upright reinforcement to the roof has popped loose.
Is there a correct method to reinforce a stick built Hip roof to the ceiling joists?
Is this inspector simply wrong?
This roof is about an 8/12 pitch?
If possible, point me to an article or explanation of the correct method.
I’ve never worked on a Hip roof before, only gable engineered trusses.
