When the owners of this residence in Tualatin, Oregon decided to remodel their home, their contractor turned to the experts at Western Wood Structures for assistance with the roof system above their backyard patio. The result was this handsome structure which features Glulam trusses with curved top chords.
The Glulams used in this project were manufactured from Alaskan Yellow Cedar and the steel components and machine bolts were powder coated. Alaskan Yellow Cedar is a species of wood that is naturally resistant to decay. It’s use insures a long service life thus eliminating the need to pressure treat.
The Glulam system was engineered by Western Wood Structures and the trusses were fabricated and assembled in the WWS shop.
