Roof Trusses are a Labor-Saving Engineered Framing Component
Trusses provide the structural framework for roofs. They are designed to bridge the space above a room and offer increased support when compared to rafters. In the past, trusses were custom built on site. Today, prefabricated trusses allow projects to be completed faster and increase both safety and strength of the end product. Over the years, Lee Lumber has built strong relationships with a few of the leading roof truss manufacturers so that it can provide outstanding components to its customers at exceptional prices.
Why Use Prefabricated Trusses?
There are a number of reasons to choose prefabricated roof trusses. Chief among those reasons, is the exceptional strength-to-weight ratio that prefabricated trusses provide. Because trusses are engineered using computer aided design, they can provide maximum support with minimum weight and material. The net result is that prefabricated trusses can provide additional freedom to builders looking to maximize indoor space or improve visual aesthetics.
Other reasons to use prefabricated trusses include their versatility, large surface area for attaching sheathing, and the fact that they save time on job sites. Engineered trusses also tend to have fewer squeaks and less movement than standard joists.
