Complete Overkill with Extra Truss or Header
4. Evalute the Need For Each Truss and Roof System Feature
This issue is identical to engineered wood products, where detailed examination and calculation nearly always yields savings, with an important addition — roof pitch. Time and again, we have seen builders resist a reduction in roof pitch due to “market concerns,” then proclaim they love a new design based on the original and can’t wait to build and sell it. Only later do they discover that the roof pitch of the new design has been reduced at a significant cost savings. However, it’s not as simple as reducing the pitch. It’s about getting the elevation details right, and a good architect is a must.
