light-duty trusses


I am trying to find a source (retail) for light-duty open-web joists. I have seen some that use 2x4 for top and bottom stringers and stamped or tubular metal for the diagonal truss bracing. But I have spent hours on the web looking for a place to purchase them. This is for patio roofing, and does not need to bear a lot of weight. As this is for outdoor use, I would actually prefer to buy the metal bracing and use my own treated lumber for the stringers.

Some building centers have catalogs on hand and may be able to order in, what you require.

Larger Lumber yards should be able to get these.
