Roof trusses hold a great deal of value because of its flexibility in design and several other reasons. Homes are the most expensive and most significant investments that most people will ever make. With that in mind, it’s only natural to want the best materials for home construction. Today we’re going to explain the value of roof trusses in greater detail. 

What is a Roof Truss?

We call it a “roof truss” when one or more straight, triangular pieces connect via joints. This triangular shape is ideal because it adds more stability and support to the home while simultaneously distributing weight away from a home’s exterior walls. Contractors can use roof trusses in commercial applications. However, residential construction is where contractors use them more commonly. 

Roof Trusses Are Quick to Install

Home construction doesn’t happen overnight. It can take a matter of months or more to build a structurally sound home. Why not reduce your construction time? Our knowledgable team can help you determine the correct amount of lumber and eliminate material shortages so that you can efficiently finish your project in a timely fashion. We can help you make the right choices. Plus, because roof trusses are so flexible, it will take less time than traditional roofing options. 

Roof Trusses Are Affordable

Lumber costs significantly less than steel. This factor is probably the top reason why contractors find this to be an ideal roofing option. Prefabricated truss roofs take away the need for extra onsite storage or carpentry space. So, not only is there less waste, but this reduces labor costs. 

Roof Trusses Offer Flexibility in Design 

Roof trusses are suitable for multiple building types. They complement a building’s theme, whatever that may be. Did you know that cathedral churches often use roof trusses? Cathedral churches or homes with cathedral-style roofs make it hard not to do a double-take. Architectural trusses are oiled, painted, and stained in a way that gives them high visual impact. Steel doesn’t have this same effect.
