Truss to Girder Connection - Retrofit Support Strengthening?
My home has long trusses with an offset vault that connects to a girder truss on one side. The girder is a 3 ply 2x6 assembly. It looks like the 3 ply girder was installed 1 ply at a time. The trusses that connect are not supported/connected with hangers. Instead there are 3 nailes nailed in through 1 of the 3 ply girders (the one closest to the trusses obviously) into each truss end. Then the other 2 ply of the girder was nailed to the first. I can tell by viewing the nailes through the small gaps that exist between the girder plys and feeling the nails with a shim.
I have had some issues with settling and it appears that the trusses that connect to the girder sit about an 8th inch to 3/16ths maybe below the girder. I can't tell if they dropped/settled or if that's the way they were installed.
I am wondering if I should and how I could perhaps jack up the large trusses at the connection point such that the bottom of the trusses become flush with the bottom of the girder and then I would install proper girder-to-truss hangers for extra support. Would that make sense? How could that be done if so?
