Industry News

  • Tim Carter is an award-winning builder and nationally syndicated columnist with over thirty years of hands-on experience building and remodeling homes. He recently began working with SBCA to highlight the ways structural building components truly are the best way to frame a house.

  • With all aspects of previous data, location planning and weather monitoring decided upon, the final decision to make was how the trusses were going to be set out.The trusses needed to be stored in a way that closely replicates real world conditions.

  • Attendees from across the country converged on San Diego, CA for a week of discussion about critical industry topics, mixed with some fun as a battle amongst members ensued on the shuffleboard courts.

  • Heavy rains, high humidity, and large temperature drops at night create a perfect place to store trusses if the goal is to potentially damage trusses from weather exposure. This was the thought process SBCRI followed in order to select locations for the weathering testing program.
