Raised Tie Trusses For More Room
Roof construction has a large number of different options available, most focusing on the height of the roof and on the structure of the space underneath. Different types can be indicated based on the space needed, the weather of the area, the building codes, or even just the desired look of the home. Generally speaking, a contractor will take the time to go over what materials are going to be best suited to a project and will confirm is they are using raised tie trusses, normal trusses, fink trusses, or scissor trusses in the construction of your home. The end result is always going to be a polished looking roof, but the space inside, temperature, ease of access, and more can be changed based upon the materials used.
In some cases, you need to ceiling height to be higher than the wall actually allows. In most cases this problem is solved via the use of raised tie trusses, that is the trusses that hold up the roof itself. These are build to be higher than typical trusses, with the extra room being usable and often used to create an attic space without the use of an attic truss. Sometimes this type of truss needs a middle support, but generally they are built not to require additional support, making them just as easy as other types of roof supports to install.
Picking the proper supports means that a space can be utilized as intended, that the inhabitants will have the proper climate control, and that repairs can be carried out in an expedient manner. Most homes in a given area will use the same type of trussing as standardization is very common within the construction industry. Some builders may choose to use different styles based on the weight that they want to support or the finished look. There is no right or wrong choice and all of the available options simply give you more customization options for the finished product.
