Roof Truss Replacement - Matching the Profile of Adjacent Trusses

Roof Truss Replacement - Matching the Profile of Adjacent Trusses

(OP)
If only a portion of residential roof gets damaged (lets keep it simple, say a simple gable roof), have you seen GC's able to order replacement trusses that match the profile of the existing trusses? I feel like any minor measurement error can be made up by the 2' truss spacing.

Or do they need to blow the entire roof away and start over?

RE: Roof Truss Replacement - Matching the Profile of Adjacent Trusses

I've had them match it on many occasions.

Yes they can match but it should be the contractors responsibility to take field measurements and let you know. If it’s a small area you can also use conventional framing and they can make the adjustments in the field as they are building it.
