You Have Lots of Choices!

As you endeavor in your journey to build your dream building, the list below will help you weigh your options on what you will need and want.


Roof Trusses

They are designed to carry certain loads such as wind, snow, ceilings, the weight of the roof and any roof traffic. Trusses are a key structural component and most building jurisdictions will require that they meet design loads. Trusses can also play a role in the function of your building as well its overall appearance.

Roofing (Painted Steel)
