Minera Roof Trusses made the leap to supplying Metal Web Joists over 8 years ago and are happy to say, have never looked back. Today, we share our reasons as to just why we love them so much. If you hadn’t yet considered using metal web joists in your build, you may find a reason or ten here.
At Minera Roof Trusses, we understand the pressure our customers face during building projects with tight deadlines. It is our pleasure to be able to take some of this away by offering a free on site measuring service to locations within an 80 mile radius of our offices or for a small fee further afield.
With requests for site visits at an all-time high, we thought we would let you in on the man behind those oh so accurate measurements.

Many of you may know him as the elusive man spearheading our social media efforts, never to be mentioned himself but keeping you up to date on all things MRT. We take a quick coffee break to sit down with Eric and find out a little more about his experiences of site surveying...
Benefits of using Timber in Construction
Timber has a long standing reputation in the roof truss industry as the trusted source of strength and stability for builds. This is because timber is a natural composite of cellulose fibres that are strong in tension and embedded in a matrix of lignin that resists compression. In fact, timber has in cases been found to be stronger than structural steel, non-reinforced concrete, aluminium and masonry.
