SOLAR READY DESIGN
With so much attention on being environmentally friendly one of the biggest trends effecting trusses is the use of solar panels. These panels add one more thing to consider when designing your home or building. When designing your trusses we can add a Solar Ready Factor into the design, meaning your roof will be designed to accommodate the added loading for solar panels at a minimal cost. If the decision to add solar panels to a roof that has not been designed with this design it may require a private engineer to study your trusses and make reinforcement recommendations to allow for the added load, resulting in a added cost.
Ask about Solar Ready Design and inform your architect and truss designer when your project is in the design stage.
