Prefabricated roof trusses have many advantages and benefits over conventional hand framed rafters. Trusses are extremely cost effective, easy to install, they can create unique framing systems and they are consistently built with quality grades of lumber.
PREFABRICATED TRUSSES CAN SAVE YOU BIG MONEY ON JOBSITE COSTS
- An entire roof can usually be set in one day saving on labor costs
- Structures can be closed faster saving on repair costs
- Cut down on cleanup costs, trusses do not require field cutting
- Jobsite theft is reduced; fewer materials are needed to build with trusses
Roof trusses can offer your clients unique and flexible designs that would be complicated, time consuming and expensive to create with conventional rafters. Some examples of unique truss designs include parallel chords, room-in-attic and double vaults. Prefabricated trusses will allow you to produce impressive homes at lower costs with faster completion dates.
Trusses are built to uphold all local and national building code requirements and they are manufactured indoors, in a controlled environment. Computer controlled saws and precision jigs guarantee 100% consistent quality, which eliminates common framing delays and expenses that can occur with rafters. Prefabricated trusses are secured with metal truss plates that provide stronger joints than rafters which are secured with traditional nailed joints.
Prefabricated trusses purchased from Midwest Manufacturing come with a Sealed Print to provide to inspectors and homeowners to ensure structural integrity, a security that you would not have with conventional hand framing rafters.
You will save BIG money on labor, repair and jobsite cleanup costs when you build with prefabricated roof trusses. You will also be able to offer your clients unique home designs at lower costs with faster completion dates which would be difficult to achieve with conventional hand framing rafters. These advantages and benefits are why 80% of new construction homes are built with trusses.
