What is Exposed Roof Trusses?

In simple terms, Exposed Roof Trusses are roof trusses that are visible from underneath. If done correctly, exposed roof trusses can be one of the most visually pleasing elements of your home.  

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.

Exposed Roof Trusses are installed by placing the ceiling on top and leaving the trusses exposed, and in doing this, you are creating a feeling of openness in the room, which increases the aesthetic appeal and the comfort level of the room. 

Even though these trusses are decorative, they are still structural trusses and are designed and manufactured to carry the required loads.  It is also important to note that Exposed Trusses need to be braced to form a Roof Truss system.

Using the latest Mitek 20/20 Engineered Design software, our skilled design team will produce engineered truss designs that are both functional and safe, while also assuring that all aesthetic requirements are met.  

A collaboration between the Architect, the Truss Manufacturer, and the Client is essential to create the desired effect.  Our consultants will make sure that all of these parties come together to make Your vision for your home a reality!
