Pulte Homes' roofs wouldn't do so well

It’d be interesting to see how SCHH roofs would or wouldn’t hold up in the simulator—the roofs where Pulte Homes decided in 2004 to substitute two nails for a hurricane clip at connections between valley trusses and main roof trusses—and then, when discovered, along with Beaufort County, decided to substitute screws for nails, instead of providing hurricane clips, which were installed in houses built at SCHH before 2004. 

My guess is that the clipless roofs at SCHH wouldn’t do so well in the simulator. 

Thanks, Pulte Homes and Beaufort County, SC Office of Building Code Enforcement.
