There are many reasons why you should consider having a preferred roof truss supplier. They can save you and your customer’s money, time and provide high-quality materials.

What does a roof truss supplier do?

A roof truss supplier will provide a comprehensive design solution for roof structures. Roof trusses hugely reduce the amount of time spent installing structural elements of the roof and working with a roof truss supplier will allow for the truss to be delivered to the site when required.

How can they help you as a builders’ merchant?

You can improve your relationship with customers as you will be able to provide them with knowledge your competitors might not have. You will also be able to call your suppliers and get technical advice instantly including answers to more complicated questions.

Many manufacturers don't always create quotes equally and add the additional extras after the quote has been given. If you work with a good roof truss manufacturer, they should supply a full quote tailored to your customer’s requirements that always includes the added extras.

You will also have a dedicated Technical Sales Manager who is there to support you and your customers from enquiry to order.

Quality is important

You will want to make sure that your roof truss supplier is providing your customers with high-quality products as this will also reflect on the standard of your company. In particular, you should consider a roof truss supplier who works with engineered timber as there are several benefits to this:

  • Speed: Using engineered timber is quicker to install than traditional material. This will allow for the product to be fitted in days instead of weeks.
  • Cost: Creating a roof truss in a factory can save money, as prices are more consistent than on-site building costs.
  • Eco-Friendly: Engineered timber is one of the greenest materials to work with, as waste can be recycled and production is carbon-negative. It is also biodegradable and will replenish soil when exposed to natural elements.

Add on sales

Pasquill, for example, is one of the largest suppliers of roof trusses and floor joists in the UK. With a large network of design and manufacturing sites across the country, they work alongside builders’ merchants and self-builders to create high-quality products no matter how technical the build.

By working with a preferred roof truss supplier, you’ll be able to secure the best deal possible. It’s likely that your customers will look around for the best prices. You can take out the hassle and cut the time that they spend doing this to offer them the best prices that they can’t find elsewhere.

Having a preferred roof truss supplier means that your branch has the opportunity to win all additional roofing materials on every order generated.

Helping your customers find what they are looking for is your top priority and you’ll need to know that you have some of the best suppliers on hand for their every need. Working with a preferred and trusted roof truss supplier can help you build a better relationship with your customers and encourage them to return again and again.
