MiTek connector plate roof trusses allow for various cost efficient designs, like connecting the floor beams right away with the roof truss. The entire assembly of top floor and roof is swung in as one component. These cuts down the on site labor time and make the installation much easier.
A further advantage is the large roof overhang, which comes for free in the same component than the floor and the main roof. Using traditional carpentry a closed roof under sight at the eve would require significant extra work on site.
Finally the mansard shape of the truss contains the outer walls of the top floor as well.
Connector plate roof trusses provide the most efficient, low cost and high quality solution for residential houses. Floor, roof and wall in one component. More value, less effort, less on site time and finally-lower costs.
