The Advantages of Truss Buildings

Truss Buildings"A wooden truss is a structural support element used for constructing roofs and floors that consists of a series of wooden triangles fit together with metal plates and other fasteners.

There are a number of advantages of truss buildings. Since they are precisely engineered, they are capable of spanning greater distances than traditional joist framing, so there is more design flexibility. The open triangle structure of a wooden truss makes it easy for installers to fit mechanical and electrical components with the floor or roof framing.

Due to the fact that trusses can clear span much larger distances than stick framing, the need for interior bearing locations can be significantly reduced. Floor trusses give the builder the availability to run duct work, wiring and plumbing through the trusses. And the truss profiles that can be created allow for some very unique structures that may not be possible or would be very costly with stick framed application.

Trusses allow for increased loads, as well as being available in a number of different designs, each one performing a specific function. This means that there is always a design of truss available for what you need.

Trusses are engineered to specific sizes, making it easier for installers to fit the trusses to the surrounding structure. This means the job can be completed faster, which is advantageous during roof construction. Roofers can get the building closed in quickly, which keeps the building and roofers protected from rain and other weather conditions.

Building with trusses will create less wood job site waste than stick framing, and the environment will have less of a carbon footprint from trusses.

With all these advantages, building with trusses saves time and money. Using trusses and wall panels can result in a savings of 16 percent in total labor and material costs, with labor savings the biggest difference.

Roof trusses are a standard part of many building designs, and they hold a number of advantages from a design and practical perspective. Discuss your roof or floor construction job with a builder or architect and opt for the use of wooden trusses to streamline the job.
