Builders FirstSource is proud to carry TimberROOTS brand wood trusses. TimberROOTS create some of the finest engineered building components that let you build cheaper, quicker, stronger and longer—up to 80 feet. They’re built to the exact specifications for each construction project, so they’re designed to give optimum performance with less lumber, less weight, less waste and fewer man hours than traditional framing. Plus, you know in advance what the cost will be, and you’ll know that the design is trustworthy and sound.
It may seem too good to be true, but engineered components like roof trusses and floor trusses made in advance can dramatically shorten construction time frames. They can also reduce the number of workers needed on a job site and even make operational system installations quicker, easier and more cost-effective. An added bonus is that—unlike piles of dimensional wood—assembled building components are less subject to work site theft.
At their simplest, our TimberROOTS roof trusses use a triangular web design of quality dimensional lumber fastened to a top and bottom chord with metal structural connector plates. While top chords form the roof height, shape and pitch, the bottom chords and associated webbing can be adjusted to accommodate any number of architectural features like cathedral or tray ceilings, vaults, porches and overhangs, attic rooms or other custom configurations key to a home’s interior layout.
Likewise, TimberROOTS floor trusses are engineered exactly to spec with top and bottom chords and dimensional webbing in between. Each truss is specifically designed to do its job, whether that’s with the top chord bearing on a frame wall, the bottom chord bearing on an exterior masonry wall or an intermediate chord bearing on a steel or wood support beam. We also manufacture cantilever trusses for balconies and load-bearing overhangs as well as stairwell framing—whatever your job needs, ready for decking.
