How Much Timber Is Needed To Make A Roof Structure?

Finally, your dream house is ready to be constructed. Are you thinking of building it yourself or becoming an owner builder? You will need some help in fabricating the timber wall frames and timber roof trusses. Before you get started, ensure that you have everything that you need. This includes the materials and the right supplier to provide what you need.

When constructing the timber roof truss structure, you will need 2” x 4” dimensional timber. Additionally, you will need to use a web of 2” x 4” for support and strength. This supports a chord or ceiling that weighs 10-12 pounds per square foot. How much timber you will need to make a roof structure? The answer will depend on some other information. Are you building a 2,500 square feet home or something smaller? The amount of timber will be dictated by the size of your building.

Besides the 2” x 4” timber, other materials needed would be galvanised steel connector plate (gusset plates), 1-1/2” screws and 3” deck screws. You will also need to choose the type of timber that will be ideal for your roof truss. Will this be seasoned fir, red cedar or yellow pine?

After all these considerations, the question is, are you sure that you can ably build your roof truss structure yourself? So, it’s important that you find a local timber truss manufacturer to fabricate and deliver the timber roof truss structure.
