Top Causes of Wood Truss Failure Addressed by Croydon Roofing Experts


Your roof relies on the immense strength of the truss underneath it. This structure consists of bars of wood or other material that are nailed, bolted, or fastened together. Wooden trusses are very popular in U.K. homes because of the numerous benefits of the material. However, wood is susceptible to many issues that may weaken it and compromise the integrity of your roof. You should call in a Surrey roofing expert to inspect your trusses from time to time if you wish to prolong its life and live safely beneath it. Various issues may make a truss repair inevitable.
