A wooden roof truss, also known as a timber truss, is essentially a framework designed to support your entire roof. They are spaced very carefully across the entire structure of your home, and each space between a truss is known as a “bay”. A closed truss has a tie beam that allows for the inclusion of a ceiling, which hides the trusses when the project is complete. An open truss, on the other hand, has a tie beam that is interrupted or designed in a scissor-like pattern. This allows homeowner to create a vaulted ceiling without compromising the integrity of the roof.
Attic Truss Profiles
Also known as 'room in the roof' truss profiles, these are designed to make the maximum available living space out of your attic profile. They do this by pushing the vertical stabilisers out to the far edge of the attic space. This leaves you with the classic attic room profile with sloping ceilings and short vertical walls on either side. To maximise space, a carpenter can even create storage solutions in the remaining void behind the vertical walls. Attic truss profiles are a great way to add value to any Burness property and are a cost-effective way to increase living space when all building regulations are followed. Attic trusses can be engineered with dormer window frames, frames for roof windows, floor joists and even balcony areas incorporated.
New Builds, Remodels, and Additions
Whether you’re building a home, remodelling your existing home, or adding a room for some extra living space, wooden roof trusses add architectural value, functionality, and a solid framework for your roof. When you obtain your quote, please be sure to mention the type of project and the anticipated roof style and material as this can impact the type of wood that will need to be used. If you’ll want a simple sloped roof with slate tiles, you’ll need a different framework than for a flat rubber roof.
Architecture and Design
When you think of a wooden roof truss, you may think of a fairly simple framework that offers support, but nothing in the way of design or beauty. These days, that’s no longer the case. Many homeowners opt for vaulted ceilings, which can provide the appearance of a larger space. Because the roof trusses are visible in this case, it’s important for them to be as beautiful as they are functional. If you’re adding or replacing stylish examples, be sure to mention this in your quote request so you can be matched with a contractor who can provide you with the service you need.

As i'd never booked it this way before I found it quick and easy and shall certainly use it again. Mr G. Burness, Orkney Islands
As with all other parts of a roof, the wooden trusses should also be inspected regularly to ensure that they are free from damage, rot and pest infestation. Once woodworm has taken up residence in trusses, it is crucial that the matter be addressed and rectified as quickly as possible.
If leaks have been present for a while, chances are that the wood will have experienced a degree of water damage as well. Both of these scenarios will require a thorough inspection to be performed to determine whether repair work can be done or whether truss replacement will need to be carried out.
DIY Roof Truss Installation?
If you need either a total or partial truss installation/replacement carried out then it really is important to leave it to the professionals unless of course you are trained to do so. Working at height always poses safety risks, as does working with large heavy wooden objects that will likely need to be craned into position. On top of that... unless they are installed correctly you run the risk of your roof collapsing under the weight of the covering. Your new timber trusses can be delivered for installation by a separate contractor, or we can arrange quotes for the installation work to be carried out for you.
Yes. They are often treated with insect repellent before they are installed, but this repellent can wear off over the years, leaving them vulnerable to woodworm and termite damage. Trusses should be inspected annually.
Depending on the size of the house, truss repair or replacement can cost anywhere from £600 - £2,000. In most cases, if some have been damaged by insects, your contractor may want to replace most or all of them.
Wooden constructions are more economical, as the cost of steel in many areas is rather high. It is also easier to attach decking, tar paper, and shingles to Burness roofing that contains wooden trusses.
This depends on the contractor you choose. Some contractors may manufacture them at their company location and deliver them to your home on a truck; others may simply bring their tools to you and build them on-site. Talk to your contractor to learn more about its individual processes.
Different contractors use different tools and methods during installation. Some may bring cranes to your home to hoist the truss, and this is especially true if you have a multi-story home. Other companies may use a simple pulley system to hoist each truss. No matter which method your contractor uses, you can rest assured that the company is well-trained and confident in its skills.
If any sections of your roof have started sagging, there is a strong chance that the trusses might need to be replaced. Our network of Orkney Islands roofing experts will be able to assess your roof and determine what condition they are in.
This will depend on the size of your existing roof, as well as the amount of trusses it currently has. In some cases, a roofing expert may recommend that additional trusses be installed, especially if the roofing material being used is exceptionally heavy.
