We offer a complete Design, Supply, and Installation of Custom Built Exposed Roof Trusses 

In plain terms, Exposed Roof Trusses are roof trusses that are visible.  The difference between regular nail plate trusses and exposed timber roof trusses is that the ceiling is placed on top of the truss structure, leaving the trusses exposed and visible.

If done correctly, exposed roof trusses can be one of the most visually pleasing elements of your home.

Roof Truss details such as vaulted ceilings (raised tie or scissors trusses) create more headroom.   Leaving these trusses exposed creates the feeling of openness which increases the comfort level of the room.

It is very important to remember that although these trusses look decorative, they are still structural trusses designed to carry the roof loads.  As such, the trusses need to braced to form a roof structure of trusses. The bracing is very important, as it serves to ensure that the trusses and truss members remain straight and do not bow out of the plane.  For more information about bracing, please read our article about the importance of bracing.

Inadequate bracing can lead to collapses and serious accidents.  An engineered bracing system will ensure the structural integrity of the truss system and will remain installed for the life of the roof system.

You can rely on our skilled design team to produce engineered truss designs, utilizing the latest MiTek 20/20 Engineered design software, that is both functional and safe.  They will ensure that all aesthetic requirements are met.
