Engineered Timber Trusses for Residential Homes

When it comes to building timber frame homes, the required timber trusses are sometimes more complicated than aesthetic timber trusses.  For this reason, we offer the option of engineer-stamped drawings for your contractor.

We build elegant and long-lasting structural timber trusses for residential projects, specifically, timber frame homes, cabins, and lodges.  When you order timber trusses for your timber frame home project from American Pole & Timber, you can trust your timber frame will last for generations to come.  If requested, your timber trusses can be treated for exterior.
