Don’t Move Materials Any More Than You Have To Hauling lumber from place to place is timeconsuming and hard on your body. Make it easier on yourself every chance you get, and start by having the folks at the lumberyard do their part. Make sure lumber arrives on the truck stacked in the order it will be used. You don’t want to move hundreds of wall studs to get to your plate stock, for instance. And floor joists go on top of floor sheathing, not the other way around. When it’s time for the delivery, unload the building materials as close as possible to where they will be used.

Open Webs Benefit Everyone For shallower depths and shorter spans, floor trusses are more expensive than I-joists, but as Biggin points out, comparing the cost of I-joists to trusses without considering the big picture can be misleading. Builders who swear by trusses like them most for their open webs, which make mechanical contractors’ work a lot easier. “My subs are able to run plumbing, wiring, and any other utility without drilling holes,” says Arkansas builder Gary Striegler. ” For Striegler and other builders, saving time for subcontractors translates into saving money for the whole project.

I-joists can be doubled for added strength or moved to make room for plumbing and other mechanicals. I-joists also offer more options for drilling holes. Manufacturers such as iLevel offer free software to help designers and builders customize performance. To help builders achieve desired floor performance, most manufacturers offer a selection of I-joists with variations in flange size, web thickness, and depth. ® Floor Trusses Are Custom Joists Given their strength, their efficient use of materials, and their open-web design, wood floor trusses are sustainably built and offer benefits to builders, subs, and even homeowners.
