Roof Trusses

Advantages of using roof trusses:
  • Pre-engineered trusses speed construction and provide a more uniform roof appearance.
  • Less intensive carpentry labor is required to install trusses, reducing labor costs.
  • Truss profile, span and spacing variations are designed by state-of-the-art computer programs.
  • Trusses are spaced to optimize strength and lumber resources. In residential construction, trusses are typically spaced 24" on center as opposed to 16" for traditional framing techniques.
  • Only quality materials are used.
  • Interior bearing walls are not necessary, offering interior design flexibility and large open areas if desired. The structural integrity of the building is not compromised.
  • Trusses can be designed to accommodate more insulation for enhanced energy efficiency.
  • Girder trusses used in stairwell openings, garage door headers, and window and door frames, may eliminate the need for columns and footings.
  • Ceiling and wall materials such as drywall can be nailed directly to the trusses.
  • Structures enclose quicker, save time and possibly avoid weather-related delays.
  • Pilferage on the job site and waste due to cutting errors, is reduced.
  • There is almost no limit to the range of shapes of pitched chord trusses.

Stick-built vs. Component Built:

Two identical homes were built at the National Association for Home Builders convention. One was conventionally sick-built the other used wood component systems. Here is a comparison of the costs:
