Roof & Floor Trusses

Benefits of Roof Trusses

Complex roof and ceiling profiles are easy to design with today’s software.

Hip and valley roof systems are much easier to build using trusses
than with conventional framing.

Trusses can be used with a variety of on-center spacings,
to optimize strength and lumber resources.

Long, clear spans are easy to create, reducing or eliminating
the need for interior bearing walls, beams, and columns.

Structures are dried in more quickly, saving time and avoiding weather-related delays.

Your imagination is the only limit when you design with trusses.


Benefits of Floor Trusses

Floor truss installations create high quality, squeak-free construction with the added benefits of reduced framing time, waste, pilferage, and callbacks.

Design versatility and open web spaces are tremendous advantages to builders
of today’s complex and sophisticated homes.

The fact that floor trusses are built with 2x4s or 2x3s oriented ‘flatwise’ means
a wide, stable bearing surface that is easier to work on and around.

The wide nailing surface provides for easy gluing and quick, accurate attachment of sheathing, reducing squeaks and improving floor performance for the life of the structure.

Spacing floor trusses at 19.2” or 24” o.c. maximizes structural efficiency
and speed of installation.

Stiffness and strength can be designed into the floor truss, creating a more solid floor.

Special bearing, cantilever and balcony details are easily built in.

Shrinkage, warping or twisting are minimized, reducing the potential
for callbacks to the job site.

Long span and girder truss options reduce the need for intermediate bearing walls, beams, columns, or footing, saving time and construction costs.

The open web configuration leaves plenty of room for plumbing, electrical,
and mechanical runs.

Typical depths for floor trusses are 12” to 24”, but shallower or deeper
configurations are possible.
