Roof supports

Postby riceisnice » Sat Nov 08, 2014 6:46 am


New to the site, will be starting to build a new place in Sa Kaeo later this year, it will be my first build in LOS so i expect to learn alot:). The builder I'm probably going to use is currently building a property on my sister in laws land, so I'm keeping an eye on the build.

I have attached some images of the so far, the steel roof trusses are currently being welded to the tops of the supporting posts first a flat plate was welded to the rebar, then the trusses have been welded to the steel plates. At present they have only been spot welded (see images). My question is should these have stronger structural welds? they may be carrying out further welding once the rest of the trusses are on.

That is the usual way they fix to the columns, as long as the welds are good welds with plenty of penetration, go around them with something pointed to knock off the slag and you will see how good a weld they are. :wink: :wink:
