Cut Floor Truss

Recommended Posts

Bill is correct. They are not cut. The extension at the bottom is just for attaching a ceiling.

Usually when you see top chord bearing trusses, or a version of them, a short portion of the top chord, end web member, or end vertical member are doubled. Also, the top end connector plate is usually larger than typical.

I agree, they're top bearing trusses.

I'm inspecting 25 buildings, each comprised of 12 units of 1,400 sf. The first stories of the units with basements are supported by top-bearing trusses that arrive onsite in one length and then are used in various lengths. The manufacturer specifies the allowable cut locations.
