TRUSS BUILDING

Do I Need an Engineered Truss Building?

Deciding to add another commercial building on your property can be costly. If you’ve been doing your research then you know you have options when it comes to on-site storage and the types of buildings you could use for your needs.

Whether you’re looking for somewhere to store salt, farm equipment or want an arena for horses, there are certain building types and regulations you’ll have to consider first.

If you’ve been wondering whether or not you may need an engineered truss building, we’re here to help.

Here are some top considerations before purchasing.

Do You Need to Lower Costs?

If keeping costs low is a key target in the new construction of a building on your site, then trusses are a great option. In addition to being faster and easier to construct than traditional roofs, you can also purchase pre-fabricated trusses to speed up project completion times and reduce costs.

Does Your Building Code Require It?

Staying in compliance with all local, state and national building codes is important. Many industries and locations will require a certain style roof and will even dictate size restrictions. It’s important to become familiar with these prior to beginning a build to avoid penalties and fines.

Are You in a Hurricane Zone?

One of the great things about the truss system is that it’s a rood system that’s built stronger than traditional methods meaning they can withstand things like heavy loads and strong winds. If you’re in a location that’s constantly hit by hurricanes and other weather events, going with an engineered truss building makes sense.
