Miami Roof Trusses -Top 10 Questions to Consider When Hiring A Truss Company

On a weekly bases I hear from clients about issues they have had with other Truss Companies. Here are 10 simple questions you should ask to protect yourself and your project. If you don’t get these questions answered upfront, you may find yourself facing change orders and problems down the road.

When choosing a Truss Manufacture for your next project there are many things one should consider, besides if they are licensed.

  1. Visit the Truss Company Personally if Possible.  Since you will be spending quite a bit of money with that company, go and see for yourself, the facility and operation.
  2. Can You Meet with The Owner or will you be dealing with a sales representative
  3. How Long Have They Been in Business
  4. How does your Architect Feel about them – this may be your first time, but Architect deals with various sub-contractors and suppliers through-out their career – find out from them.
  5. Reference Are Good – but remember you will only be given the reference they want to give you.
  6. Will they put everything in Writing?  Find out the process, always require everything in writing.
  7. Will they list All The Pages of The Plans on The Proposal
  8. Will they State on Proposal, that the trusses will be designed and built to code
  9. Will they give you a Preliminary Plan Prior to Final Plans & Engineering
  10. Will they give you plans to approve prior to fabrication

Doing some leg work of your own can add to the stress of building a home, but it can also save you more headaches down the line.  At Deco Truss, we are vested in You and Your Project, because simply put, you are our biggest advocate in the future. Stop by and meet us in person, we are always here to help you.

Lumber’s Upward Volatility to Continue in 2014

Source:                     Widman’s Market Barometer        

December 18, 2013       

This has been a volatile year for lumber prices. A strong rise early in the year was followed by a significant drop as we approached mid-year; now prices have recovered as we approach year-end. We expect lumber prices to rise by an average of 18% this year, and this is just the start.

As discussed throughout this forecast, forest product prices may be the elephant in the room next year. Some analysts believe we may be at the start of a “super-cycle” caused by strong demand and limited supply. Look at the factors that are now in play. On the demand side, there is the U.S. housing recovery and China. On the supply side, look at BC, which has seen its production cut by five billion bf in eight years.

Furthermore, in a number of other areas within North America, the potential for real expansion has passed. There is no doubt we will continue to see higher prices. The question remains: for how long? Supply and demand in forest products features a worldwide ebb and flow. If North American lumber becomes too expensive, look for the re-entry of European wood into the North American market, and an increase in logs going to China from Russia, New Zealand, Australia and Chile; there could also be an increase in the use of alternative products such as steel studs.

In the coming year, we are expecting prices to increase by a further 15%–20% above and beyond the 18% increase of 2013. Furthermore, for Canadian producers, the falling loonie should help their bottom lines even more. In addition, the U.S.–Canada lumber dispute may get a new lease on life.
