NACHI.TV co-host Paige Peters teaches inspectors to look for notches, holes and
cuts in joists, rafters, and studs. Learn which ones are OK and which ones are
a structural defect.
"In this episode we will learn how to inspect notching, cutting, and bored holes
in solid lumber, learn how to determine whether alterations in floor joists, roof
rafters, and stud walls are structural defects or are permitted by current standards,
and learn about simple spans, thirds, knots, actual joist depths, cantilevers,
entsion and compression. This is a must show for inspectors performing existing
and new construction inspections." Paige Peters
Another set being built for an upcoming advanced training episode on notches,
holes and cuts.
