Roof Truss Repair,” Q&A, 1/13

I recommend to clients that if an engineer designs a repair and certifies the installation, a copy of the repair design and certification should be put in a closed plastic bag and stapled to the truss. Plus keep the originals around for disclosure when selling, and pass it on to the buyer at closing. If an inspector goes up in the attic and sees a truss repair and the certification is right there with the repair, it becomes a non-issue note in the report. — StuBrooks

Totally. If it is not stapled to the truss it is a call-out for me. — inspectordeck
