Thanks Red Horse, you're right about cost, if you factor in every aspect there is not a huge difference in cost compared to the quality of finish. Roof rafters require a lot more work, but if yo need 50' lengths as is pictured, it's a done deal. I like the zero shrinkage factor as well as no cupping or bowing to speak of.

Follow the manufacturers specs which should be supplied with the material and if you have tech questions TJI has a great 800 tech line. They were very helpfull when I had questions. Also ask your supplier for any available literature. If you get a design dwawing from TJI, pay close attention to the notes and symbols for special conditions.

Re: Building Roof With Tgi Joist


Good advice frome loneframer. It is critical that you make birdsmouth cuts correctly. I'm sure you will find that info on website. Many times there are hardware considerations as well. This should all be specified in the plan that will arrive with the load.

The option to birdsmouth cuts is a beveled bearing plate as shown in one of my pics. I actually prefer birdsmouths to bearing plates but either are acceptable.
