A truss is a frame that supports loads by efficiently transferring its forces to end supports. While stick framing might use larger 2x8, 2x10, etc. members (which are expensive and hard to find without going into old growth forests), and might require either additional beams or interior load-bearing walls, trusses can span a longer distance without additional supports, while using less expensive and more plentiful 2x4 members, usually arranged in intersecting triangles.
Our trusses are engineered using state-of-the-art design software from ITW Building Components Group Inc. They are designed to withstand more than twice the required loads and are engineered to hold up under 130 MPH winds.
