How does the timber price affect the cost of roof trusses?

Currently, considering the market situation for the last ten years, the price level of timber continues to grow with each year. This, of course, is clearly affecting the cost of the roof trusses. Freimans Timber Constructions is using planed spruce timber, the purchase price of which is growing at an ever-faster pace. Why spruce timber? Not only is it the most commonly used timber in construction but, it also absorbs moisture very slowly, thus ensuring that the product will last much longer and will not change under the influence of external conditions.

In addition to the favorable weather conditions – short spring and dry summers – all this has made it possible to meet the supply of raw materials to the timber truss industry.
