PREFABRICATED ROOF TRUSSES
As a roof is one of the largest, heaviest and most costly structures in a home design, home builders should choose quality over price when it comes to workmanship and materials.
Prefabricated Timber Roof Trusses are based on SANS 10160, 10163 & 10243 and connected with an accredited Engineering System’s nail plates as per their design and supplied by an accredited ITC-SA Fabricator. ITC-SA (The Institute for Timber Construction) is South Africa’s professional body and regulator of the engineered timber structure industry.
Roof trusses are designed using MiTek Industries software programme which is one of ITC-SA’s Accredited System Suppliers.
The roof structure is arguably one of the most important construction elements of any residential building to be constructed, as it protects the occupier’s property, finishes and inhabitants from the elements. It is also one of the largest, heaviest and most costly structural components in any home design. Prefabricated roof trusses are cut by advanced, specially designed machinery and are therefore far more accurate than their hand-made counterparts.

Benefits of prefabricated roof trusses
- In conventional roof building, the carpenters build a roof frame, which leaves much to chance and the builder's opinion in terms of the roof's strength. A truss roof system is designed by engineers in a factory to accommodate the specific roof design and meet building codes, which allows for a more uniform size and roof pitch.
- Higher quality materials and strength; roof trusses are fabricated inside a shop, where the materials are not exposed to inclement weather or moisture conditions.
- Trusses can typically be installed in a single day, speeding the home construction process and getting the structure closed up sooner, which helps prevent moisture and other weather elements from getting inside.
- Trusses are cheaper than conventional roof framing due to labor savings and since they are built from shorter lengths of 2x4 lumber rather than the large size lumber required in building rafters and ceiling joists.
- Roof truss systems allow for almost any custom roof design and shape imaginable, allowing features such as cross gables and cathedral ceilings without being prohibitively expensive.
- Roof trusses can span much longer distances without the need for load bearing interior walls.
- The only real disadvantage of roof trusses is that the homeowner ends up with less usable space in the attic area; a very small price to pay!
