Wood trusses use 40 percent less timber than the traditional pitch-roof method. Plus, the wood trusses use smaller pieces of lumber that extend for greater distances. Since they’re constructed with precision tools off-site, there’s far less wood waste with wood trusses.
Labor costs are a factor in the construction business. Since wood trusses are designed and manufactured off-site in a controlled environment, everything stays on schedule. Also, the wood is protected from exposure to moisture, which means you’re getting the most value for the investment.
