The Basics of Roof & Truss Construction

The construction of a high quality roof and roof truss is not as simple as collecting some timber and generic roof tiles together and slotting them into place. Modern standards of roofing mean so much more than that. The foundation of any roof is vital to provide solid structural support and durability against the elements.

The roof structure can be rightfully considered significantly more important than what actually sits on top of the roof, as the stability of one's roof can affect the entirety of the house.
If you live in a part of the world that is susceptible to torrential downpours and heavy winds then the importance of a solid roof is more relevant than you may have initially thought. However, it will be obvious that your roof should be designed to withstand all of these elements and maintain a safe and secure environment for everyone living inside.
The best practice to acquire such support is to start with a strong and durable truss structure. Roof trusses are an incredibly cost effective and efficient means of obtaining all the structural support you need, whilst benefiting from a visually pleasing aesthetic. Roof trusses are commonly designed and manufactured away from the project location and on site, to be delivered to the project location and installed on the same day.
Waterproofing your roof falls not too short of the most important factor when constructing a roof. Your waterproofing layer sits underneath the roofing materials that you see from the outside. If those materials you are choosing for the roof are relatively heavy, such as slate or roofing tiles, you may require some additional support in the truss framing, which should be discussed before the design and manufacturing processes.

Once your truss and roofing is installed and constructed, you will be left with a safe and secure feature that adds value to your home across multiple sectors.
