Day 100: Dealing with the Truss Issue

A man from the company we bought the trusses from came on this day.  This company sends a person out to measure rather than having the builder submit measurements.  This was his second trip out.  He measured the trusses, asked to see the papers that came with the trusses, and measured the house.  At that point it was obvious there was a problem.  I expected to have more of a discussion before we reached a solution.

In the end we were allowed to keep the bad trusses and are getting new trusses.  With the holidays we are looking at a slight delay for them to be delivered.  We will get new, correct trusses (the man measured multiple times), but it will take a couple of weeks.  Expect a slight delay on updates depending on the actual delivery date.

  1. Wonderful that they are leaving you the old trusses. You may be able to re-use part of them on the inside of the house.
    Not so wonderful is the fact that they have put you so far back on your schedule.
