Attic Roof Trusses Built to Specification

As an architect or builder, you’re likely to come across more and more people who are finding themselves short of space in their homes. It may be that their family has grown and that the 3 bedrooms that were a luxury at the start of their journey is now not enough. Alternatively, they might be one of the increasing number of people who want the luxury of working from home, but don’t want to do so in the middle of their lounge or kitchen.

When your clients are faced with the need for extra space there really are only two alternatives. They can move or they can extend. Extending might involve cutting into garden space to build another room on the side of the home or going up into the attic or down into the basement. In many cases, going up into the attic is the easiest, most attractive, and ultimately the most cost effective option. But from your point of view it’s a question of choosing the right attic roof trusses to get the speed, quality and price you need to make the job attractive all round.
