Update of Roof Truss Designs with Nailing Schedules
Wood roof trusses have been used in residential construction since the 1960s. In more remote locations they are built on-site and the joints covered with plywood, nailed according to schedules. This research reviewed and updated the design and nailing standards, particularly in regards rain and snow load. This revaluation and updating provides useful information for builders when trusses must be built on-site. It forms a part of "Canadian Wood-Frame House Construction", also published by CMHC.
