ORDERING GUIDE

 

To determine the number of trusses needed for a common gable roof or floor use the following formula:
(Building Length / Truss Spacing) + 1 = Total Trusses Needed

To determine the number of common and gable end roof trusses:
Number of Exposed Ends = Number of Gable Ends Total Trusses Needed - Number of Exposed Ends = Number of Commons
