Obtain the right carpenter for your structural construction
Roof trusses, the base of any roof, are what makes yours solid enough to withstand the snowiest of winters and strongest gusts of wind! Although, over time, prefabricated wooden roof trusses have become the most popular roof structure for any project, it's vital to consider the amount of snowfall you can get to ensure that your roof structure can support the snow and ice that our winters bring. Creating a roof truss is an exact science —often done by computers remotely — so choosing an expert carpenter in this field is a must! This way, you'll end up with a well-built roof structure that can be easily installed by professional renovators in roof structures.
What is roof framing?
Roof framing is the assembly of triangle-shaped lumber for the purpose of supporting your roof structure and protecting your home from inclement weather such as high winds and snow. The cutting and installation of these frames is essential to the integrity of your home, since an error in an angle of a few degrees could have the impact of a maldistribution of weight and causing disastrous results. Only an experienced contractor will know what type of frame you will need, the optimal angle to choose, the spacing between each piece, and how to install it correctly.
Installation process of roof trusses and roof framing
First of all, depending on the structural plans of your roof, the contractor will cut the wood and assemble all your roof trusses with the air barrier and the nailed furring when necessary. Once all your pieces are assembled and solidified, the lifting of the pieces with a crane can begin. The team will guide the elevation of the pieces one by one to place them on your roof in the proper order. The pieces will be guided by a team on the ground and fixed one by one by a team on the roof that will install them from one end to the other. Once all the trusses are solidified, the contractors will install the fascia, followed by 4' x 8' boards on the frames to cover the entire framing. At this point, the main framing will be in place and contractors will finish the installation.
