Anyone in the process of building a home will know that costs often have a habit of getting out of hand, especially when you are accounting for so many aspects of your build. It’s natural to want to know how much you can expect to pay for certain components of your new home in order to create a realistic budget. With this in mind, you are probably wondering how much you can expect to pay for your timber trusses, which are essential components of your new home.

What are timber trusses?

Timber roof trusses are structural frameworks designed to bridge the space between your ceiling and support your roof. Comprised of triangular units, timber trusses are the main structural support in your home providing stability and strength by distributing weight away from your external walls.

How much are timber trusses?

The costs of your timber trusses vary depending on where you purchase them from and if you opt for prefabricated trusses or trusses built on-site at your home. You can expect to pay anywhere from $200 to $500 per truss. Your timber roof trusses for your entire home are going to set you back approximately $9,000 to $15,000.

What impacts the costs of timber trusses?

There are several different factors that are going to impact the costs of your timber roof trusses. Some of these factors include:

• Prefabricated vs traditional: Traditional timber roof trusses cost significantly more than prefabricated timber trusses. This is due to the fact that prefabricated timber trusses are cheaper to craft. Traditional timber trusses are complex to put together, requiring significant labour and time to build on-site, which can impact your home build overall.
• Building type and size: The bigger and more complicated your building is, the more complex and numerous your roof trusses are going to be. This is especially true if you are extending your home or renovating your home which often requires complex workarounds.
• Labour costs: The labour costs are going to impact the costs of your timber trusses. If you opt to have your timber trusses built by hand you are going to be paying significantly more in labour costs as timber trusses can take many hours to build by hand. This will cause your trusses to be more expensive.
