Our timber truss and roof systems are designed specifically to fit your needs, but it’s good to have an idea of where to start.  Here are some standard timber truss designs we have worked with in the past, and feel free to click on each picture to see different variations of each.  All of the engineering is done in house, and a stamped set of engineering drawings can be included in the truss or roof system package.
The most basic of truss styles, yet very efficient where a conventional ridge beam and rafter system structure is employed over the top.  Aesthetic variations include diagonal struts, curved and/or raised bottom chords, etc.

Now instead of one main post there are two.  This allows for more architectural detail to be incorporated, not to mention realizing larger truss spans using shorter timbers.  These are often used for flanking central windows or a fireplace in a Great Room.  These are better suited for carrying a pair of timbered principal purlins in lieu of a single ridge.

This truss utilizes a pair of angled bottom chords that lap in the center to achieve a more cathedral or lifted look.  The king post is a critical structural member whose end can be run through or stopped short, allowing for varied end details.  Due to the pair of angled timbers, this truss is better suited for use in higher roof pitch situations (6 in 12 and greater).

A classic truss where the top chord and bottom chord are parallel, hence the name.  Very useful in spanning long distances and carrying great loads.  We have taken this truss to the next level by offering a version with a curved bottom chord, either from a single laminated piece or a multi-segmented one where the posts run completely through.

If you didn’t find a style you like yet, look here.  We have had some unique requests and, with our in-house design staff, we have come up with several of our own.  These are here to spark your imagination.  Both roof pitch and span will guide us in determining what may be aesthetically pleasing.
