An attic truss, sometime referred to as ‘Room-in-Roof’, is a simple means of providing the structural roof and floor in the same solution. The attic truss is similar to the standard version, albeit the engineering opens up a space at its bottom centre to accommodate a living space, with webbing above and on either side to support the roof.
The Advantages of Attic Trusses
Attic trusses offer considerable advantages over other forms of living roof construction. The trusses usually span from external load-bearing walls, however where possible utilising internal structural walls allows for even greater room widths. Similarly, like standard trusses, they are less expensive than traditional build methods in terms of materials and time on-site. Room in roof trusses can be erected quickly, offering cost savings for both joinery and project overheads, whilst providing a weathertight shell earlier.
