Conventional rafters have to be cut, custom built and installed on-site, which can really pack a punch in terms of expense and labor costs. Trusses, on the other hand, are manufactured off-site and ready to be installed when they arrive at the construction site, which can significantly reduce expenses.
Flexibility and Versatility
Timber roof trusses are very versatile and compatible with other structural products. They can be linked to other trusses, or amalgamated with other components, such as glulam and steel beams.
The primary advantage of a truss is that it can be installed quickly and cost-effectively, even without heavy equipment to lift it into place. Most trusses are factory-built, and delivered to the job site as a complete set for the structure to be built.
Timber exhales in Co2, grabs the carbon for itself and releases the Oxygen into the environment. It doesn’t stop here! Fifty percent of Timber by weight is carbon stashed safely away.
