Are trusses cheaper than rafters?

In short, pre-made trusses are typically cheaper than rafters assembled on site when you factor in labour. 

1. Trusses are made in a factory using specialist equipment, and as such can produce products faster and more accurately than a human can. This drastically reduces labour costs and, despite trusses being initially more expensive, will work out cheaper in the long run when labour is factored in. 

2. When designing your trusses, we can optimise the amount of timber we use within our software to reduce wastage, resulting in a lower overall cost for both you and us. 

3. Trusses are consistently accurate and simple to install, further reducing labour costs and setbacks on site.
