Gosford Frame and Truss are the trusted and proven suppliers in the region and beyond. Notably for its quality products but also reasonable and cost-effective prices.

Our services include fabricating and installing timber structures, but we also offer you design services for your roof trusses, wall frames, floor trusses and timber cladding.

For one thing, Gosford Frame and Truss have a team of experts who always work to find innovative ways in designing roof trusses. Hence they always fit your requirements.

Timber roof trusses are a configuration of timber members. They are designed with attention to holding the weight of the finishing roof materials. Additionally, they support the snow load that may happen in some areas of Australia. These are good alternatives to conventional roof framing methods. They are prefabricated and designed in many different shapes and sizes.

Roof truss members are joined together with nail plates, which are sheet metals specially designed with perforations. Nail plates come in different sizes determined by us, as your roof truss manufacturer.

These structures are factory built, so they are less labour intensive. They can also span great distances without the need for any centre support. The trusses are quicker to construct and meet local and state building codes.

We can ensure that the trusses and your structure will be designed for the roof application intended. We base our advice on the geographical location and meet all the pertinent building codes.

Gosford Frame and Truss Services

Our design services use the MiTek 20/20 roof truss engineering software, the most popular and widely used design package. The MiTek layout allows us to frame accurately for the precise fit. We are able to check the measurements of all the components and prepare the complete details of the erection.

Trusses designed from MiTek software follow various building codes. The roof trusses design is prepared using an advanced design and drafting system supported by MiTek’s professional engineers.

We can directly supply you with full working drawings from our computer system if you’re building a residential dwelling. However, for large and complex building projects, we will be aided by the professional engineers of MiTek. This assists in providing the full working drawings with all the connection details, truss designs and bracing.
