How Much Timber Is Needed To Make A Roof Structure?

Congratulations! You will soon be starting work on your new home construction project. Therefore, you may be thinking of a list of items, suppliers, and contractors that your need for the build. Some of the things that you will need may include the setting of foundations, the procurement of materials, the timber wall frames and roof trusses for the building and so on.

There are so many decisions to be made, before you can start construction. Like for example, which material should you use for the roof trusses – metal or timber? Many builders in Australia are aware that the most common material used is timber, not only because of its flexibility, but also because is it always strong, generally light, easy to work with and install and can be environmentally friendly when sourced sustainably.

How much timber you would need to construct a roof structure is determined basically by the size and design of the roof truss structure. So, calculations will have to be made, before you know the quantity of timber that will have to be purchased.

Roof trusses are an important element of a home. They give the roof the structural support it requires, so that it can stand in position. They also hold the walls together and the other timber parts, completing the “lock up” stage of your new project. Today, these structures are prefabricated off site and delivered to your construction site, once finished. This process of prefabrication provides the following benefits:

  • easy assembly
  • reduced onsite labour costs
  • no potential weather delays
  • reduced material pilfering at the site.

We first gather your requirements, before starting the design process. Our goal here is primarily to come up with a roof truss design that will give structural stability to your home or project, while at the same time being able to effectively carry the load of the roof.

The roof trusses of Newcastle Frame and Truss are designed and manufactured in our own factory, using modern technology and the most up-to-date and fully integrated software. We have high performing equipment, which allows our team to offer you the highest level of technical support and customer service.
