The Advantages of Trussed Rafters
Roof trusses are used in over 95% of all new housing in the UK and are increasingly being used in commercial and industrial settings. 
Here are some of the major advantages of roof trusses:
1. A fully engineered, practical, flexible solution for a wide range of roof structures.

2. Material savings: trusses can use up to 40% less timber than a traditionally built roof.

3. A method of roof construction which utilises established industry skills and equipment.

4. Because roof trusses are pre-fabricated components you save time and cost on site.

5. Reduced site waste, loss and pilferage of materials.

6. Space saving on site, with no need for timber storage or carpentry areas.

7. The ability to accept a wide range of roof and ceiling coverings.

8. The design flexibility to accommodate the wide range of services required in modern buildings.
