  1. We have preliminary print for a new home we will be building in Athabasca, Alberta area a 1 1/2 story home with walk out basement and wondering best approach to get a cost using open joist for main floor, cathedral ceiling on front half with prow roof and sissor trust for back 1/2 of home. Also suggestions for 3/4 around house deck extending out 12 feet.

  2. I have a construction company and we do mostly remodels. We are beginning to have clients ask about moving or install bathrooms on a second floor. Not knowing for sure if we will have to cut joists until we open the floor, I’d love to know if your product would help with our issue regardless of the floor. The way I see it, we could replace a joist or 2 or 3 with your product and be able to run toilet drain and other plumbing and electrical through the space, is that correct?

    Can you send me specs of your products? Do you have one that would replace a 2×8 joist?

      You said it right, the TRIFORCE® open joist is a good way to go for your plumbing and electrical clearance.
      As for the depth of our joists, depending on the replacement you are looking for from a project to another, we manufacture 11 7/8”, 14” and 16”.
