Wood Roof Trusses

Details

Using the correct design for roof trusses will save you space and may eliminate the need for interior load-bearing walls, giving your home a more open look and feel. The advancement in roof truss software has allowed designers to accurately create complicated and unconventional roof designs in less time and with less waste.

Metal plate connected wood trusses offer a low-cost product, with fast and easy installation, and can be used for virtually any roof or ceiling. Turkstra Trusses uses a minimum of 2x4 for all residential, commercial and agricultural truss projects.

Engineered Floor Systems

Details

Turkstra's engineered floor systems are custom designed for each specific project, eliminating the need for bearing supports and allowing for a more open concept. The floor systems engineered by Turkstra allow for greater flexibility in floor layouts than conventional framing.

Architects, engineers and designers trust Boise Cascade's engineered wood products to provide a better system for framing floors. The SIMPLE FRAMING SYSTEM®, featuring beams, joists and rim boards that work together as a system, so you spend less time cutting and fitting. In fact, the SIMPLE FRAMING SYSTEM® uses fewer pieces and longer lengths than conventional framing, so you'll complete jobs in less time. Your builds will have fewer problems with squeaky floors and ceiling gypsum cracks, AND better performance in your floor.

Turkstra Advantage

Traditional Floor Engineered Floor System Advantages of Engineered Floors
Layout of traditional 2x8 - 2x12 spruce lumber floor systems add significant additional material to account for inconsistencies of traditional lumber, and to accommodate more modern open floor plans, making mechanical runs more difficult to execute Laid out with state of the art computer software to exacting specs, engineered floor systems afford cleaner, simpler more efficient mechanical designs that can easily accommodate many popular open concept designs Less material, less guesswork, easier on site installation that yields simply the highest performing floor system available.
Inconsistent depths and dimensions in traditional lumber - every tree is different Consistent, stable dimensions with uniform depths and thicknesses that perform predictably and reliably over time Flatter floors, fewer squeaks and easier to construct. Simply a better performing floor system
Prone to knots, checking, warping, twisting 100% consistent, flaws are eliminated Greatly reduces waste due to inconsistent materials and computer aided design removes guess work on site
Large dimensions can be heavy and cumbersome Lighter, stronger than sawn lumber Easier to handle, quicker construction, lower labour costs
Restrictions on maximum allowed spans and often requires 12" O.C. joists Myriad of products to allow for longer spans and less posts Bigger spans, more open construction is possible, less posts, less material, and an overall better performance
Reacts to moisture/humidity changes by expanding and contracting Stable over time with significantly reduced reaction to moisture/humidity More stable over time and less squeaks, better performance
Large dimensions require larger more mature trees and better forestry stewardship Uses half the wood fibre of dimensional lumber Lengths available up to 48', and build "GREEN" into the project

Engineered Wood Products (EWP)

Details

Engineered products consist of wood derivatives that are manufactured by binding veneers and boards together with adhesives to create composite materials. Engineered wood products can be used in a variety of building applications including commercial and industrial areas.

Engineering software enables the products to be custom-designed for each project to increase spans and enhance floor performance. Joists are manufactured with the highest-quality dry lumber and structural adhesives, while Turkstra's engineered wood beams have the rigidity and strength to support the most demanding of projects, and they resist bowing and flexing found in traditional wood framing.

Steel Roof Trusses

Steel Roof Trusses

Details

Steel roof trusses have been used in commercial building construction for a number of years. Steel trusses are more durable and less prone to environmental damage. With a lower weight than wood trusses, and a high strength to weight ratio, steel trusses are becoming increasingly popular in residential construction.

Light-gauge steel trusses offer a lightweight product that is easy and makes for fast installation. These steel trusses are generally used for light commercial and industrial use because of its higher fire rating. This engineered product can be used in almost any application with any interior or exterior geometry.
