Note to Wood Truss Guys!
We’re not wood framers, we’re drywall installers (Rockers) and we breathe gypsum dust not sawdust. In the late 70’s it was proven Truss Uplift was separating (cracking) our taped ceiling joints. We had nothing to do with it, but guess who had to fix it? again and again at no charge! In response, we invented and produced the Truss Floater™ Bracket that allows the truss and the drywall to FLOAT, eliminating floor or ceiling separation.
We don’t like to brag, but thousands of homes have been protected by using Truss Floater™ Brackets without a single ceiling joint crack reported.
Backer Springs replace the third stud that obstructs insulation and can create a cold shaft in every corner. The extra studs were never used before drywall and have been proven by (HUD-55) to add nothing to the structural value of the building. The unnecessary framing simply adds a lot of extra cost to both builders and framing contractors. Modern 2-Stud 'Floating' Corners will also prevent drywall cracks, mold and mildew problems. This ‘Advanced Framing’ technique has been proven in the new Building America Initiative, a nation wide demo program spon-sored by the Department of Energy and the new National Renewable Energy Laboratory directed by the Building Science Consor-tium. This modern (2-Stud) framing method is rec-ommended and specified by every authority and code in the building trade.
