Steel Trusses

Steel trusses have been being used in commercial building construction for a long time. In the past 10 years, there has been an increase of their use in the building of residential areas. There are several reasons for this. These steel trusses do not require trees to be cut down to make the studs, and the price of steel does not fluctuate as much as the price of wood. When the price of wood is high, using steel studs is an excellent option as the price is stable and they provide a greener alternative to using natural resources such as wood.


Advantages (Benefits) of Steel Trusses:
The advantages of steel trusses include being lightweight and mold resistant, unlike wood framing. Also, steel material makes it possible to span a large area, such as an airplane hangar. Perhaps the most important advantage is the fact that steel is not combustible like wood, making it resilient in a fire.
