Automated Products Inc.
I got a chance visit the folks at Automated Products Inc. (API) in Marshfield, WI. They were kind enough to show me around the plant. They helped me compile a list of the most common mistakes they see contractors make when working with roof trusses. They also offered up some great advice on how to avoid those mistakes and future callbacks.
Don’t forget about the heel height
When ordering new trusses to match existing trusses include the following information: the slope, the span, and the heel height of the existing truss. Contractors often forget to include this last bit of information. If the heel height isn’t the same on two sets of trusses one will sit higher than the other.
