The Basic Types of Trusses

Standard Roof Truss Configurations

When it comes to roof construction, the pitched or common wood truss is fantastic. It has that classic triangular shape that you often see. We make sure each truss design is cost-effective.

Standard Floor Truss Configurations

The panel chord or flat truss gets its name because its top and bottom chords run parallel to each other. This type of truss is perfect for floor construction.
