Gosford Frame & Truss has been designing and building trusses for over 30 years and in that time, we have seen just about every problem you can imagine. In our experience, the most common reason roof trusses fail is because of poor engineering. Trusses are a big part of making your home safe and structurally sound, so it’s important to get them right the first time.
We have a team of experienced engineers who can help you design the perfect truss for your house or commercial building. We will work with you to assess the shape of your roof and determine what type of trusses you need to get the job done. From there, we’ll draw up designs that meet all local building codes and we’ll make sure they’re safe and structurally sound.
What you need to know about roof trusses for your home or next project
When it comes to roof trusses, there are a lot of things to learn, but the best place to start is with what a timber truss is and why it’s important for your home or project.
Trusses are triangular frames that are used in construction to make roofs. They are popular because they support the roof structure without the need for internal walls, so they allow for open spaces that you can use however you want. Because they’re often made from wood, they also allow for more organic shapes and arches than concrete or steel beams do, which can really help tie your space together.
Trusses are also much lighter than flat beams, which means that you don’t have to use as much material to support them. This is especially true when you use wood over other materials like steel or concrete. When you’re building a new home, this can be good because it means you’ll save money on materials, but it’s also good if you’re looking at renovating an older home since lighter trusses will put less stress on the existing structure.
What is timber truss design and why is it important for your home or next project?
Timber truss design is essential for the purposes of construction because it provides a structurally sound method of creating a building.
One major advantage is that timber truss design can save you a tremendous amount of money. The reason for this is that the timber truss design allows for the span to be longer than other types of building structures, therefore requiring fewer supports. With fewer supports, there are fewer materials used in the construction process and less labour required, which translates into saving you money on your total project cost.
