Brand New Home Problems?!

Kevin did this home inspection on a brand new home in the Foley, AL area. While traversing the attic he found this damaged structural framing member a.k.a. a Truss

You can clearly see the break in the truss and someone attempted to fix it with 2 nails, then bent the nails over to hold it together.

All repairs to engineered lumber must have a letter or engineering stamp indicating that the repair has been approved.
