Attic Trusses

By their definition Attic Trusses are designed to enable usable space within a roof, this could be for example, an additional bedroom or for storage. Using our design software we can look at maximising your space to provide that extra room or vital storage. Typically an Attic Trussed roof can be designed and manufactured within a week.

If head room is an issue or overall dwelling height is a planning consideration then we can design your trusses to overcome these problems, using a Raised Tie Truss we can provide additional headroom as shown in the first drawing below, or alternatively we can design in a Scissor Truss to gain headroom.
