This is how Pulte Homes connects roof trusses at Sun City Hilton Head, SC. The SC building code requires that houses at SCHH be capable of withstanding a 130 mph hurricane.

In articles by The Island Packet (eg,  http://www.lowcountrynewspapers.net/archive/node/14423 ):
.
· Pulte installed hurricane clips at these connections BEFORE 2004 and AFTER 2007



· TWO THIRDS of the truss-to-truss connections in houses built between 2004 and 2007 that The Island Packet inspected had either one nail or NO nails or the substitute two nails were short, driven in split wood, or missed their target COMPLETELY

· Beaufort County, SC issued occupancy permits for houses here with KNOWN and documented, but uncorrected, defects

· In 2007 2,749 houses at SCHH built between 2004 and 2007 were re-inspected and repairs were made to 668 of them

· In 2009 The Island Packet reported that roof truss connections in BRAND NEW HOUSES here CONTINUE to be defective

· Dishonest, reckless and arrogant Pulte Homes CONTINUES their SOP to “DENY, DENY, DENY” (see Rasmussen article, pg 12A, The Island Packet, 4/28/20 and http://peretired.blogspot.com/2010/04/kewpie.html )

SCHH roof design does NOT meet SC building code:

Those are spam-bots leaving those comments. They run rampant on Blogger. I highly recommend deleting them. And DO NOT click any of those little dots, unless you're into crazy pornography.
