The value of floor trusses
The joists and trusses that provide the needed support for the roof and floor of your home may not be the first thing that you think about, but they are essential to the stability of your home. If you need to install new floor trusses to support the new layout within your home, then it pays to take the time to get it right. Here are three reasons that choosing the right floor trusses matters.
Floor trusses provide the needed support
The primary function of any floor truss is to provide sufficient support to keep your floor in place as you fill your rooms with furniture and then go about your day-to-day activities in peace. However, good floor trusses will do more than provide support. They must also provide sufficient dynamic response or springiness to make walking on them a pleasant experience. Often the best way to achieve this result is to work with a specialist flooring company to design custom floor trusses that have been designed with your home in mind.
Floor trusses can allow your desired floor plan
When you are thinking about the layout of your property, it is often preferable to design large open areas that will let in light and create an impression of space. To bridge these large spaces, you will need to fit long floor trusses to lay an adequate floor that doesn't rely on a load-bearing wall to provide the needed support. You might choose to fit traditional wooden floor trusses or perhaps posi trusses, but your designer will be able to advise of the most suitable choice.
Floor trusses can have maintenance benefits
While most people think about floor trusses in terms of supporting the floor, they can also have another role. If you fit the right floor trusses, you can choose an option that permits easy access for household utilities such as air conditioning ducts, plumbing and electricity supplies. All of these services will need access to your home, and incorporating that access into your property design will save you considerable time, money and stress in the future.
