HIGH COUNTRY TIMBERFRAME - Timber Trusses
Heavy Timber Trusses are a perfect way to enhance a great room, kitchen or entryway. They are also economical solutions for hotels, restaurants and businesses that want a high end look to their buildings
If you need the timber trusses designed, you can work with our design team to develop the best design based on structural and aesthetic needs as well as costs and time.
If you have the design, provide us with the specifications and we will custom manufacture to your needs.
Our Standard Styles include the King Post, Hammerbeam, Queen Post and Scissor Timber Truss, however, we can custom design wooden trusses for your project - any style, any length, any design.
King Post Timber Truss
King Post Roof Trusses are the most cost effective truss, and they look great when curved braces and webs are used. The King Post Timber Truss handles long spans and heavy load conditions. This truss, used in conjunction with heavy timber attic or collar tie trusses, works well in a loft area, a great room or for an entryway. Modified King Post Trusses are are especially good for when more visual height is desired in the building plan.
Scissor Timber Truss
The scissor truss gets its name from being shaped like a pair of shears (scissors). A Scissor Truss can elevate part of the bottom of a truss structure as two inside beams rise to meet one another in the middle of the truss. This adds space for a peaked or "vaulted" interior ceiling. The Scissor Timber Truss really blends well with all styles western, contemporary, Old European and even a cottage style if the roof pitch is low.
Hammerbeam Timber Truss
The Hammer Beam Heavy Timber Truss is best for distributing the roof load. It includes posts which extend to the first floor system. A hammerbeam heavy timber truss is often used where wide, clear spans are required and where structural members would obstruct the view. Modified Hammer Beam Trusses have a great look with their open design and arched webs and braces.
Queen Post Timber Truss
Queen Post Roof Trusses are very similar in design to king post trusses except that the interior of the truss has two vertical ‘queen posts’ instead of one central ‘king post’. They look great and offer an open area in the middle of the truss.
