The Six Advantages of Wood Trusses

  1. Flexibility and Versatility: Wood trusses are compatible with other structural products and allow architects/designers to work with more freedom.
  2. Eco-Friendly: Compared to other buildings wood consumes less energy to process, minimizes air and water pollution, and is the only renewable construction material.
  3. Economy: The time consumed in developing wood trusses is considerably lower than other materials. Lastly wood trusses don’t contribute to waste at the job site resulting in clean up work being less costly.
  4. Durability and Strength: Wood trusses allow for accurate fabrication and consistent quality control, this results in required structural integrity being achieved.
  5. Energy Efficient: Wood trusses have phenomenal thermal properties compared to steel. They create large cavities that make insulation easier.
  6. Aesthetical Freedom: Wood trusses have virtually unlimited variety allowing the designer excellent margin to experiment with aesthetic features of the building.
