Choose an appropriate roof truss to convert your attic into a living space

Machined wood roof trusses are increasingly popular with building contractors. As a result, the many companies that specialize in machining roof trusses have greatly expanded their product line and offer many types of roof trusses that can be adapted to any project.

However, not all roof trusses are suitable for the attic space of a house. In fact, there is a very specific model for just this type of project: the attic roof truss. This truss is designed to leave an open space inside the attic by using the bottom chord as the floor joist and the spacers as the walls of the room to be converted. This leaves a rectangular space free in the middle of the roof truss, making it possible to create a brand new living space in your attic with some renovation work.

Advantages of a machined attic roof truss

Despite the higher cost of attic roof trusses compared to standard roof trusses, they still provide undeniable advantages that are certainly be worth the investment in the long term.

Optimizing the space in your home

A prefabricated attic roof truss is the only type of roof truss that can be used to convert your attic space, allowing you to use all the space in your home. If you think you might need an additional room to create an office space, a guest room or simply to have more storage space, the attic roof truss will help you bring your projects to fruition.

Unbeatable quality control

When you are converting your attic into a living space, you want to make sure that the structure supporting your new room will be strong enough to bear the weight of everything stored in it.

One of the major advantages of prefabricated roof trusses is that they are factory built. This involves a rigorously controlled manufacturing process to ensure the highest quality of the final product. Manufacturers use state-of-the-art equipment to design, fabricate and inspect roof trusses so you can be confident that your home is safe.

Faster construction and delivery

The work environment in a factory is naturally ideal for offering a fast construction service. This is because in a closed building, carpenters are not constrained by weather conditions that can make a project long and complicated. This makes it possible to properly plan the logistics and schedule a precise delivery date and location.
