A roof truss props up the roof and ensures that its underlayment and roofing materials completely retain their shape. Architects heavily design and revise roof truss shapes to satisfy the customer's functional and aesthetic roofing needs.
Here are five strong roof trusses that will always require high-quality lumber.
Room In The Attic
Many residential properties across the country have a room-in-attic truss design because it adds property value. Plus, it effectively substitutes for basements as a permanent storage area for light to moderate weight items.
Room-in-attic configurations require an average number of roof trusses to guarantee long-term stability and dependability.
Fink trusses have a W-shaped truss configuration that establishes stability. However, homeowners that want a wider roof span can use the tri-bearing truss design.
Tri-bearing designs can expand roofs by 5-10cm. Therefore, any home with expanded roof requirements can count on tri-bearing truss designs.
Homeowners who prefer added personality to their room-in-attic trusses should consider a barrel vault truss design. These create a curved, barrel-like interior attic ceiling surface.
However, barrel vaults need much more roof trusses than room-in-attic designs.
A queen attic truss design offers great stability for fewer roof trusses. However, homeowners can expand their roof span with a modified queen truss. These add two more trusses to improve the high slope design width.
Three Piece Raised Centre Bay
The original three-piece long span has no attic and uses long trusses as roof support. The three-piece raised center bay emulates the room-in-attic design and removes the field connectors.
Both long span and raised center bay designs to achieve long roofing spans from 120-160cm.
