Heavy Log Trusses

For Contractors

log truss

With our custom designed notching equipment we can achieve 100% bearing surfaces at member connections. For accuracy and tight fit our uniquely designed machinery cannot be matched and you will not find trusses with tighter notches. Period. Connections on traditional log trusses, are generally excessively hollowed by chainsaw and chipper guns resulting in eventual settling...the last thing you want in a roof system. We offer full round log truss and timber trusses with internal or external hardware. We can supply Douglas Fir, Englemann Spruce or Lodgepole Pine with a smooth or handhewn finish. Our equipment can manufacture trusses 7" to 24" in diameter and spans up to 60' are possible.

 

 

  

commercial log truss

Need accent logs?

Log and Timber Truss Works can serve your log needs in a timely and efficient manner - helping you serve your customers in the same way.

If size allows, we will ship the trusses fully assembled and ready to set.  You can well imagine the savings in having prefabricated log work delivered to your site.

If size does not allow for shipment of large log trusses and heavy timber trusses; we can ship truss members, prepared with engineered connection systems, for ease of assembly at your building site.

In addition to trusses we can supply logs or timbers for a complete roof system. Our machinery can produce logs up to 60" in diameter!!  Up to 32' in length!!

Next time you get plans that call for logwork give us a call and we can be your one stop source for log accent work.
