Cracked Roof Ridge and Rafter Repairs

A customer hired us to evaluate their attic for structural defects because she heard “creaking” at night and thought she heard some “cracking” sounds.

After further evaluation it appears that the overhead roof ridge had cracked and a rafter had cracked.

We prepared an engineering letter to specify replacement and reinforcement needs so that the owner was able to obtain a permit and hire a contractor to complete the work. Having engineering documentation of the repair is crucial when selling the home!
