How far should trusses be spaced?

How far should trusses be spaced? Trusses are usually spaced at regular intervals, typically 600 mm, 900 mm or 1,200 mm apart. The spacing depends on the mass of the roofing material and local practice. A range of truss types can be configured to attain different shapes.

How far apart should trusses be? Roof trusses should be 24” apart, on center. Trusses are allowed to be closer together, at either 12” or 16” on center, but building codes allow for 24” on center spacing without using heavier duty fasteners for truss to wall connections.
