Trussed rafters


What are the main advantages of trussed rafters?


Whether you are looking to build a medium sized home or a larger property, trussed rafters will help you to create a home that is styled specifically to your needs. However you choose to design your home, trussed rafters will provide you with an ideal structural solution.

Flexibility of design

For people that would prefer to re-design their home to create a more interesting structure, trussed rafters are perfect. This type of structural roof design will give homeowners the chance to create a home using more complex designs using angles and cross gables. Trussed roof systems allow the homeowner to have a greater input into the size of the roof pitch and the overall design.

Cost effective building procedure

Assembling a flat pack home using trussed rafters is cost effective as the process is simple and repetitive. As it is estimated that a frame for a 3 bedroom home takes approximately 5 days to complete, it is clear that you will save on labour costs.

Protected from weather conditions

As trussed rafters are built within a property, the frames are protected from any damage that may be caused by the weather conditions, helping your home to keep its shape and structure.

Covering large distances

If you want your home to appear longer in length as opposed to the width, trussed rafters will give your home the stability to span much longer distances without the need for many extra interior walls.

Trussed rafters are designed to combine strong timber and metalwork in order to create a high-quality structural framework for any flat pack home.

This type of structure is most commonly used for domestic housing, but can also be used as the main structure for industrial buildings. Trussed rafters also allow homeowners the flexibility to change their home to meet their needs and requirements, whilst offering a cost-effective solution to roof construction.
