abeamhanger

Here is a metal beam hanger cut out by the same framer that installed it in League City. The purpose of a beam hanger is to carry the weight of the beam and all loads placed on the beam like the walls above that are sitting on this beam. This passed the city and 3rd party builder inspections.

anglepurlin

Rafter braces should be installed perpendicular to the roof slope to carry the roof load. Not on an angle such as this. All that is going on here is saving money in lieu of adding a double beam or joist for this brace to properly bear upon.

brickchimney2

Friendswood- If you know anything about construction or codes you have to laugh at this one. Here is a brick chimney placed on top of a wood beam in the attic and brick has to be supported by steel. Secondly, you can see the water drips down the wood beam which will rot it out. When the beam rots out what happens to the brick chimney? There are a lot of issues with this set up
