The repair and modification of metal plate connected wood trusses can be a very complicated subject, because each situation must be analyzed individually. Common situations that require repairs include: damage to the truss from delivery, handling or installation; adverse environments; fire; and manufacturing mistakes. Whatever the reason for a repair, the principles to be followed are similar. The truss repair must result in a truss that is able to carry all loads intended for the truss.
