Oak Roof Trusses
Excluding elegance, style and character an Oak roof truss or feature truss adds the “wow” factor to any new build or extension.
An oak roof is formed with trusses and purlins which are the visible and dominant feature transferring the weight of the roof onto the walls.
A Feature Truss adds the style and “wow” but does not necessarily form part of the structure.
All Oak Trusses come in many different forms, performing different functions and creating different looks within your living space.

Pricing for Oak Trusses
The cost of an Oak truss can vary enormously, a simple functional truss can be really cost effective, the more complex and embellished the truss the more it will cost but the more it will take your breath away. Every roof is unique, starting with a blank canvas we can create the perfect balance between the aesthetic and the fiscal.
Why Buy Oak Trusses from Timberpride?
An Oak specialist family business, built over 23 years by founding directors Alexander and Victoria, we are proud to be making fully hand crafted Oak frames here at Timberpride in Tetbury.
We are a small and genuinely friendly team of people, passionate about working with oak, be it in the forest, on the sawmill, oak frame carpentry or the person on the phone.
Oak gets under your skin, the Oak forest is intoxicating, the smell of freshly milled logs the character of the living material. We believe combining modern tools with traditional hand skills to scribe each joint, knowing how to read the timber, understanding how it will respond to the jointing, orientation within the frame and of course the structural integrity of each piece whilst creating your very own unique frame is the only way to do it properly.
Our carpenters use skills and judgment passed down through the generations to make your frame, we encourage you to come and meet us at work here in Tetbury to put names and faces to those who made your Oak frame.
When you start loving Oak you’ll want to know more. Each tree we use has been growing for over a century, where did it come from, what was happening when it started to grow? We choose each and every stem in the forest before bringing it to Timberpride, we think that’s special. We want you to understand the journey it has been on before it starts its new life as part of your home. This new relationship can last for many hundreds of years, so the introduction is important.
The Ordering Process
We are happy to talk to you no matter what stage you are at with your project. We can help you design the space, taking into consideration your desires and ideas and also site constraints, such as ridge height, truss choice and room span.
If you already have designer’s or architect’s drawings we can produce framing plans specific to the frame all other details omitted so the frame design can be agreed. If all you have is your own pencil sketches we can work with that too!
Once you have settled on the design and it has been signed off by a Structural Engineer we can process your order. Typically your job starts when the specification for structural timbers goes out to the sawmill and the logs are selected for milling. Every frame we make is unique, depending on size and level of detail required determines the length of time it takes the carpenters to make it, however long that is our own oak frame carpenters are dedicated to your project until it is complete.
Delivery of Oak Trusses
The completed frame is normally dispatched in component form for ease of unloading. It is equally possible to dispatch assembled trusses to site, however, it is normal to have a crane on site for unloading.
