Re: Valley Rafters

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
When I first started on my own in 1988, I was asked by a home owner 
to look at a sagging roof.  The house was approx 16 years old and he 
suspected a heavy snow caused it.  I went there and crawled up in the 
attic to find it was stick framed and the valley "beam" was a 2x4 
spanning 23'. Enough said.  I now check valley beams regularly.
