I'm building a detached garage and am having some potential problems with the roof.

The problem is that the garage is close to the aerial supply lines for power, phone and cable. I called the local power company, and they said the garage is far enough away from the lines. The cable and phone are below the power, but they are close to the roof. I'm not directly under the lines. I am off to the side of the lines by about 2 1/2 feet. Vertically, I'm about 3 feet below the phone line. The question is how far from these lines do i have to be, since the phone company is very slow at responding to this (been over a week,and no response.

Thanks

See fig e9. Says 3ft below for a 4/12 or steeper roof. That is for it crossing directly over the roof.

You should be fine.

But when you start construction as the PoCo to sleave the drop while you are doing construction.

About your question about the location of hurricane ties they make a number of different styles and I think some go inside and some outside.

Check the manufactures catalog and see how they show them.
