Cracked Rafter

Postby rdclk23 » Sun Mar 25, 2007 12:13 pm

I have a gabled roof on my 10 year old house. One of the rafters (2 x8?) has a knot in the middle of it and has cracked 1/2 way through. So 4" of the 2 x 8 is still solid. The crack is less than 2 feet long. Any suggestions on how to repair this?
