Scotts of Thrapston has specialised in timber engineering for many years and has continually invested in personnel, software and machinery to reinforce its solid reputation.

Scotts designs and supplies all structural roof components from trussed rafters and room in the roof trusses through to complex roof structures for special applications.  In addition, Scotts supplies the easi-joist engineered floor system. The open metal web design offers a cost effective alternative to traditional solid timber floor joists.

Over recent years, Scotts has supplied bespoke porches and canopies to many leading UK housebuilders and developers, designed to suit their new housing developments and project requirements.

As a leading member of the Trussed Rafter Association (TRA), Scotts of Thrapston has to meet recognised professional standards.  Customers can buy trussed rafters or metal web joists from Scotts with confidence, secure in the knowledge that TRA membership is a mark of quality and service.

Leading UK housebuilders and construction companies choose Scotts for their experience of handling a diverse range of projects, large and small.

Timber and Treatment
All timber used by Scotts meets the highest quality PEFC standards and is cut from managed forests and sustainable sources. Timber roof trusses, metal web joists and feature trusses can be supplied pressure treated, if required, to all the latest British Standards. Special finishes, including fire resistant protection, are available on request.

Planning and Design
The Scotts technical team starts by gaining a full understanding of your project requirement. The designer will then produce detailed drawings, utilising the latest design technology, to ensure cost effective timber engineering solutions for each project. An accurate and detailed estimate for your bespoke timber engineered products will also be provided at this stage.

Manufacturing Expertise
Scotts combines technology with craftsmanship to produce timber roof trusses, complete roof structures, engineered floor systems, porches and feature trusses to meet your required specification.
