Helena, OK -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/14/2014 -- During the construction of a building or home, so many details must come together.

Roof trusses are pre-built wooden triangles which support the roof of a home. Trusses are utilized in both commercial and residential edifices, as another option to traditional roof framing. Trusses are generally made from wood or steel and nailed together to make a strong, supportive base for a roof. By using pre-built trusses, construction workers can greatly decrease the time it takes to raise a home or a building.
Roof trusses can also be used to create distinctive rooms and unique alcoves that greatly enhance family living space. Vaulted or coffered ceilings create visual appeal. It’s an easy, inexpensive way to make your home appear more upscale. Additionally, trusses use lumber conservatively, and this environment friendly aspect will appeal to people who are eco-friendly. Trusses are configured to use lumber in 2 x 4 pieces that work in tandem to brace the roof. These small pieces of lumber can be garnered from younger trees, rather than old-growth forests.
A truss has several slanted supports that stretch from the middle of the truss towards the outside at a 45 degree angle. These supportive braces interconnect with the angled framework that shape the roof’s slope. They also entwine with the horizontal woodwork that supports the bottom of the truss, and the ceiling of the structure.
From the builder’s perspective, trusses have several advantages:
-They are very strong and durable
-Because they are made completely of from short pieces of wood and are usually much less costly than other options.
-Trusses are installed rapidly.
-A truss will stretch a great distance and all the weight is transmitted to the exterior walls.
-Neat features like vaunted ceilings can be installed at a reduced cost.
Remember, the main purpose of a truss is to support the weight of a building’s roof. Trusses enable creativity in design and this has helped to make them more and more popular. With today’s innovative home styles, more sophisticated roof patterns, and other unique features have increased expense. The use of prefabricated roof trusses can largely compensate for these additional costs.
