Hi all,
I saw this image online and I’m just curious to see if this is structurally a good method to join rafters on top of a ridge beam. In the photo you can see the rafters are beside each other and nailed rather than flush cut and butted up against each other and nailed. To me it has to offer more structural integrity, am I wrong? Is there a negative??
I’m attacking something like this on my own roof in the coming days and although I’ll be putting birds mouths at the ridge side aswell as the wall plate side, this would really interest me, mostly because a ridge beam is put there to push the force mostly downwards instead of outwards, and surely this would help the process if there was any minute attempt to spread?
