Is this truss lift??
The link is to images of this case. Click the “show info” upper right of slide show for captions.
This production house in S.E. Pa. has a trussed roof. It is 3 years old. The first season (October) a drywall joint opened up (1/4″ +/-) at the change of ceiling plane in the picture where the flat ceiling meets the “cathedral” ceiling. The builder installed a foux beam over that area to conceal what they thought would be a seasonal event. Now the next joint over opens up seasonally.
This crack is located less that 24″ from a lam- beam and parallel to it as well. Two different trusses come together right at this beam.
