We recommend that our customers take full advantage of the information available in the JOBSITE Packages we provide upon truss delivery.

For some time we had SBCA documents in pdf form that you could open directly on our site. Fortunately, the folks at SBCA have all these documents in one place on their site. Going there to look at them ensures you will always find the most up-to-date information available.
