Oak roof trusses are incredibly strong, economical wood that comes from oak trees, giving it the ability to provide strength to support high roofs in areas of high winds and rain damage. When combined with other materials such as stainless steel, aluminium, or copper, these types of roofs can be designed to last for many years. This means you get huge savings on repair costs, as well as being able to enjoy the beauty of your new, stylish roof for many years to come. Not only does it add great value and added visual appeal, but also reduces your carbon footprint. Timberpride provide then and work towards a greener future.
Oak roof trusses with double-pointed star points are particularly popular and can provide a clean, modern look, with a classic feel. Oak vaulted roofs with double-pointed star points and square gable roof trusses make a dramatic architectural statement and a noticeable sense of space, creating a stylish, distinctive visual impact and a hugely positive impact on the building’s energy efficiency. The appearance of oak truss can be dramatically different depending on the angle at which they are viewed. Whilst vertical shafts can give a more solid feel and improved resistance to wear and tear, horizontal shafts can provide an open feeling, with less resistance, which can help with applications where you are trying to conserve space.
Oak roof trusses can be made from a variety of different oak, including white oak, compressed shavings, and black oak, though the most expensive is the white oak. If you want your roof truss to have an authentic old world feel, then using oak is a good idea.
