In the past 4 decades, the use of trussed rafters has significantly grown and is estimated they now account for 95% of roofs for the housing market, with significant inroads into the commercial market.

In recent years, Crendon has increased its product range to include panels, spandrels and Metsa Wood engineered-wood products, all of which can be offered regionally on a design, supply and install basis.
