We Are Featured in this Month’s Journal of Light Construction

We have been Featured in this month’s Journal of Light Construction for our tapered LVL roof system. The article outlines the use of Laminated Veneer Lumber to build a roof in order to create a TRUE flat roof where the roof perimeter is completely level.

On most flat roofs, the roof perimeter slopes to allow for roof slope for drainage. The LVL flat roof allows a level perimeter with the LVLs being cut down for drainage within the plane of the roof.

The stacked LVLs before cutting

The LVLs are laid along the top plate. The return slope for the gutter can be clearly seen.

Once laid out, they are conventionally sheathed.

Each LVL was individually calculated and drawn out, before cutting.
