Is something like available for a 2x4 rafter for a shed?

Asked by breakfastburrito April 13, 2021

Answer

The RR is for a minimum 2x6 hangers (2x4 version not available). It would be up to Designer to specify the appropriate connector based on framing layout, demand loads, etc., but the U24 and HU26 hangers can accommodate 2x4 members and can be special ordered to a specified slope. Thank you!

Can this be used to connect a rafter of a patio roof to the header? is a birdsmouth still needed?

Answer

It is up to the Designer/Engineer of Record to specify the appropriate connector based on framing layout, demand loads, local building codes, etc. With the RR the rafter would be flush to the face of the header; a birdsmouth cut is not needed, but the rafter would be cut for the appropriate slope (The RR may be used with rafters sloped up to 30°.). Thank you!

Face-Mount Rafter HangerThe LRUZ offers an economic alternative for those applications requiring a sloped hanger for rafter-to-ridge connections. Used with solid sawn rafters, the LRUZ’s unique design enables the hanger to be installed either before or after the rafter is in place. The field-adjustable seat helps improve job efficiency by eliminating mismatched angles in the field and lead times associated with special orders. The LRUZ offers comparable or better load capacity to other rafter hangers at a reduced cost while using fewer fasteners. Part #'s, LRU26Z, LRU28Z, LRU210Z, LRU212Z, depending on rafter size. use LRU26Z for 2x6, etc.

That's what I did. I ran extra nails to make up for the ones I was loosing. I'm not sure if that's ok to do or not. If it's an end rafter outside of the wall, much of the load is being carried by blocking over the exterior wall anyhow. And if your roof line is flush with the exterior wall, the load is being carried by the wall beneath it. That last hanger doesn't do much structurally. Snapping the end tab off shouldn't be any problem.
