Versa-Strand® LSL Roof Framing

Versa-Strand LSL Roof Framing

A solution for complex roof designs

Modern roofs demand stronger components

Complex roof lines can require rafters 30′ longer or more. Versa-Strand LSL roof framing excels in these longer spans. Frame modern roofs with cathedral ceilings, open vaults and multiple peaks that finish as smooth as glass, reducing prep time for your drywall installers.

As close to perfection as possible

Versa-Strand LSL roof framing provides superior dimensional stability, density and consistent moisture content, virtually eliminating callbacks for cosmetic issues related to traditional lumber’s tendency to dry and twist.

Strength that seals the deal

Where load and shear demand the ultimate in strength, Versa-Strand LSL roof framing deliver maximum consistency. No knots. No twisting. No shrinking. The result is tight joints and connections. No split ends and less culling of inferior boards keep wasted material to a minimum.
