Roof trusses are today’s preferred choice for roof design, providing a fully engineered solution and allowing rapid installation times.

Roof trusses are an engineered and tested timber product connected with engineered metal plates, enjoying an outstanding record of more than 35 years of proven performance and durability. Melingoed embraces nationally recognized standards for truss design and the manufacturing of metal plate connected wood trusses. Trusses are manufactured under CE Certification using PEFC certified truss timber and ITW Alpine plating technology.
The modern trussed rafter roof has evolved to allow the creation of a range of roof-scapes, each encompassing any number of truss profile types. Considerable advantages are offered by attic trusses, providing a means of increasing the value of your home through incorporating a ‘room-in-the-roof’.

Timber roof trusses offer benefits for architects and environmentalists
The timber construction of roof trusses is ideal for the environmentally conscious as timber is the only truly renewable building resource. Being a natural insulator, wood construction also benefits from higher thermal efficiency than alternative materials such as aluminium, steel or concrete.
