Hiring a Crane Company for Roof Trusses
A roof truss is an A-frame roof support made of interlocking joists, jacks and rafters. These trusses are usually built to be installed in one piece, but because of their large size, specialized equipment is necessary for lifting, maneuvering and placing them on a building.

3 Safety Concerns of Installing Roof Trusses Without a Crane
Due to the bulkiness and high weight of roof trusses, using a crane for installation is much easier and safer than working without one. Installing roof trusses without a crane can be time-consuming for your project and cause serious — and potentially even fatal — injuries.
Safety risks include:
- Transporting trusses around the job site: Moving the trusses around on the ground may be impossible if the job site is tight. It also risks your crew’s well-being if a truss is dropped during
- Dropping trusses during lifting: The weight of the truss may be too great for a crew to lift it to the roof. If dropped, it can cause significant injury to anyone nearby as well as damage to the surrounding structure.
- Trusses falling after installation: If the roof trusses are not in their exact location or secured properly, they may fall into each other, creating a domino effect of toppled trusses. Such a situation could injure workers who are on or near the structure.
