ROOF TRUSS INFORMATION
To find more information about roof trusses, to see different truss types and learn more about truss design, please follow links below.
In many cases, building a pole barn with roof trusses is simpler, faster,
easier and more cost effective compared to building exactly the same barn using
rafters. In addition, using clear span trusses in a building, helps to
eliminate any rafter or loft supporting center posts providing completely
"post-free" interior space design.
Tip: When ordering roof trusses for your building, get a
quote for the same truss with slightly higher snow load design. For
example, if your local codes call for 35 lbs of ground snow load, ask for 40
lbs. In many cases, cost of trusses won't be much higher and you'll sleep
better when next major snow storm hits, knowing that your roof will not collapse
under unexpected several feet of snow.
