Roof Trusses: We manufacture roof trusses in all shapes and sizes, up to 14' tall and up to 60' in length. Our trusses provide the quickest and most economical way to frame a roof, whether it be for your new house, pole barn, office building or apartment complex. We design our trusses to the highest standards, utilizing a 10 PSF Top Chord Dead Load and Snow Loads specific to your job site using the Montana Ground Snow Load Finder or contacting your city or municipality for information specific to your project. Our hip trusses are known throughout our service area as being the best available. We design using 'Step-Down' Hip Sets for simplicity on the job site. We also have the ability to minimize much of the lateral restraint bracing other truss manufacturers depend on to reduce their price.
Floor Trusses: Our open webbed floor truss configurations allow for increased accessibility for plumbing, heating ducts and electrical wiring. Custom fabricated to exact measurements, our floor trusses do not require field trimming, bearing blocks or rim board installation. We're also able to save you money in other areas by eliminating interior footings, headers and beams. We can also eliminate the need for annoying drop framing for HVAC trunk lines and other duct work. Available in 12"-24" heights, our floor trusses can be built up to 40' in length and installed on a variety of 'on-center' spacing options including 16" OC, 19.2" OC and 2' OC. Floor truss installation time is estimated at 35% less than I-Joist systems and 65% less than conventional stick frame systems.
Specialty Cutting: We employ some serious cutting power! Our saws have the ability to precision cut lumber from 2x4 to 2x12 up to 16' long to any length you would like. Need 500 2x6s 50-1/4" long? No problem. Want us to cut out the trimmers, headers or studs for your next project? Let us know, we can most likely cut more efficiently in our shop than your or your crew can in the field using a chop saw or circular saw. Our saws utilize 'Board Stretcher' technology that significantly reduces waste resulting in more lumber where it needs to be and less in the scrap pile.

Building Materials: Our sister company, Bear Paw Lumber is a full service lumber yard and home center, offering everything you'll need on your project including sheathing, framing lumber, EWP, siding, shingles, connectors, sheet rock, insulation and much much more.

Our truss design software gives us the most accurate rendering of your project, resulting in a competitive advantage over other lumber yards. You can depend on our take offs to be an accurate reflection of your project's needs.
