Benefits of Wood Trusses

  • A wood trussed-home costs less. The total in-place cost of trussed roof and floor systems is lower. Trusses are delivered to the site ready to be installed. Labor is saved because trusses can be installed three to four times faster than it would take a carpenter to build the roof on-site. The open spaces in the trusses allow duct work, plumbing and wiring to be installed quickly and easily.
  • You get peace of mind - knowing that the trusses were professionally computer-designed, engineered and factory-built to assure the highest quality and reliability. It's easy to remodel or make an addition because most interior walls can be moved if your needs change.
  • Trusses allow virtually unlimited architectural versatility. That means designs can include vaulted or studio ceilings inside the home and high pitched or hipped roofs on the exterior, offering greater aesthetic and functional advantages.
  • Proven performance - hundreds of millions of wood trusses have been installed throughout the country. In fact, wood trusses are used in more than 75% of all homes built in the U.S. and Canada today.
  • Pre-engineered wood trusses are scientifically designed for strength. A pre-engineered framing system eliminates guesswork on the construction site.
