How to Join Timber Roof Trusses?

Has your attention been attracted by eye-catching and intricately designed roofs in your neighborhood? If so, there is a good chance that these roofs have been designed and constructed using prefabricated roof trusses. These are timber structures, composed of small triangles, which are factory-built and designed in such a way, as to carry the load of your home’s roof to the exterior walls. They are pre-made and then shipped to your job site, by a large crane truck ready for installation.

Very close to 80% of new homes constructed in Australia today; use prefabricated timber roof trusses and wall frames, instead of the traditional method of building from the ground up. Trusses allow large spans, allowing flexibility in using the interior space and, they have taken over the place of rafters in many home designs, because they cost less and provide the needed support to the roof, without the need for expensive timber.

If you are looking for a popular manufacturer of timber roof trusses and wall frames in Sydney and the surrounding areas, Heyden Frame and Truss can help meet your building requirements.

Timber Roof Trusses

From centuries ago, the design and construction of all roof trusses was done on a trial-and-error method and based on carpenter’s intuitions, which are most often flawed, leading to repairs and repeat of the job. Today, timber roof trusses and wall frames are manufactured in a facility and custom-made for every project. Heyden Frame and Truss make trusses and frames, using the highest quality timber, joined with special steel plates, which make your construction durable and strong.

These structures are delivered to your job site  ready for installation and accompanied by installation instructions. It will dictate how and where the truss should be positioned. On that basis, it will only take one – two days, to complete the assembly of a private home-owner’s roof truss, but may be longer during inclement weather.

Truss installation requires a lifting crane that will lift the roof truss, to a certain height above the ground. Using the rope system is very rarely used nowadays or not used at all. Using a crane is much easier and faster, although the highest level of precision is required, when lifting the roof truss, as the first placement effort will dictate, how the rest of the process will go.
