We had a class action law suit out here and for my location they are installed wrong.. That exposed steel that was pounded with a framing and the galvi blown off then starts to rust,, not good. When they are set right the strap is angled out and not straight up. It needs to be pounded with a hammer and block of wood to get vertical.

Re: Simpson Tie Downs - Spalling


So what are we doing here, looking for ammo to use against the contractor who built your house for you?

That's generally frowned upon on this site, justified or not.

Already established builder is not doing anything about the issue. Some replies have helped me already as how to fix the problem myself, which was the purpose of posting.
