Why you need timber roof trusses for your new home or project


Do you need to install roof trusses for your new home or project? We highly recommend using timber roof trusses due to all the benefits they can offer you throughout the construction process and beyond.

Timber roof trusses have become a popular choice among construction contractors building owners in Australia, owing to their cost-effectiveness and natural robustness.

Here are some reasons why you need timber roof trusses for your new home or project:

1. Design flexibility

There are several design requirements necessary to create timber trusses. These requirements include the maximum load the roof can support, theme requirements and the overall length of the roof.

We can create timber roof trusses according to these unique requirements, which usually differ between projects. This level of design flexibility ensures your roof trusses are specific to what your structure requires.

2. Thermal benefits

Timber Roof TrussesTimber has a natural thermal insulation quality as a result of having air pockets in its cellular structure. This means it can keep your home warm throughout the winter months and cool in the summer.

This has a knock-on effect on your power consumption bills as you’re likely to spend less money on heating and cooling utilities each month.

3. Internal design element

Prefabricated timber roof trusses maintain their unique design elements over time. This is because they have enhanced structural properties when compared to false ceilings.

Timber roof trusses give your home a dramatic and rustic feel, owing to their cottage-like design. This demonstrates how these trusses are a much about form as well as function.

4. No on-site hassle

Our timber roof trusses are prefabricated, which means that they are designed and manufactured off-site in one of our construction facilities. They are pre-assembled at the facility and only need to be connected to the framing when transported to the premises.

This reduction in on-site activity leads to reduced labour costs and time consumption. You don’t have to worry about noise pollution or an eyesore in your front garden as all the hard work is done away from your property.

5. Time management

Timber Roof TrussTimber roof trusses take less time to construct and install when compared to other options. This is because of the pre-fabrication process.

Brick-and-mortar installations can take around 8 to 12 months to complete whereas timber frames and trusses can take as little as 6 to 8 weeks. This translates into reduced costs overall.

6. Structural consistency

Timber roof trusses are designed with stability and durability in mind, despite their easy installation process. Timber is a strong material that’s able to retain its form and position even when facing the most challenging weather conditions.

The structural integrity of timber trusses provides new homeowners with peace of mind that they’re investing in a top-quality product for their new dwelling.
