There is a growing trend to provide house buyers with as much useable space as possible within a certain footprint and providing a room in the roof is an effective way of doing that.

Room in the Roof trussed rafters, or attic trusses, are a real benefit to the housebuilder, developer and homeowner alike and are a quick solution at the new build stage to provide extra rooms.

Typically, the system will increase the available living space by 30 per cent without increasing the footprint. It is an efficient way to optimise land and its quick and easy erection offers cost savings on site as it removes the need for more complex, labour intensive work.

A Room in the Roof trussed rafter combines the structural roof and floor in one component and, once erected on site, provides a complete roof structure that is ready for roof finishes, plasterboard and floorboarding.

These trusses are specifically designed to accommodate all loads required for an additional room while consistent quality is provided as the attic trusses are factory assembled.
