Trusses are assembled from a series of members called chords and braces. By distributing loads to tension and compression members, trusses are configured to be proportionally strong as compared to their weight. Trusses are ideal for long spans, where the height of the roof is not a major consideration. Truss roofs may be flat, pitched, or gabled. When performing a truss analysis, each component must be assessed and reinforced where necessary.
