Richmond vs. Lexington
So what is the difference between the two types of trusses used in these structures? With an Lexington, two beams are placed diagonally meeting at the top of the roof. For support, a small cross beam is placed in between close to the top, providing stability to the roof while also allowing for open space underneath, which creates attic space.
While this truss method is still extremely sturdy, and still allows us to forego the need to build supports for the roof, it does put size limitations on the structure. However here, customers are typically looking for additional storage space that can be hidden away.
Due to the complexity of these structures, Lexington garages must be built on-site.
Here is some useful information and specifications for the attic truss garages:
The roof is built with attic style trusses 16″ O.C. and 1/2″ exterior-grade TechShield sheeting with lifetime (limited) architectural asphalt shingles
The walls have 2×4 studs 16 in. O.C. and TechShield wall sheathing
Includes one single prehung solid door
Three (3) 30×60 vinyl insulated windows
Includes two (2) 9 ft. x 7 ft. overhead doors (insulated)
