About

  • We produce the highest quality product
    In our trusses we use 2X4 #1 & Better Douglas Fir top and bottom chords and we typically keep our panel
    lengths in our roof trusses at 8’-0”. This insures a quality product and reduces warranty and back-charge issues. 
    We also have an unsurpassed “Five-Step” Quality Assurance Program

  • We fabricate floor trusses
    We are the leader in fabricating floor trusses for single-family homes,
    condominiums, apartments, hotels, and commercial projects.

 

  • We will meet all schedules
    Our expertise in scheduling and number of trucks on hand means we can meet your
    scheduling needs. We realize that truss calcs for permit purposes are an issue, so
    we are quick to react.



  • We have very competitive prices
    Our large volume of material purchasing allows us to pass discounts on to our
    customers.
    We DO NOT cut corners on materials or designs in order to get your business! 
    We believe we can make a quality product at a fair price.
  • We are considered one of the “Greenest” truss companies
    in the United States

    Our facility is solar, our truss designers optimize webs and chords for less waste, and
    we are using less paper by utilizing electronic files for plans and truss calcs. 
    Also, we recycle all of our wood waste, office paper, cans, and bottles.

    grandchildren tomorrow. In 2004 when we had the opportunity to build a new facility, we built the first solar truss plant in
    Northern California. We feel that is our responsibility to be proactive and take a leadership role within our community and in our
    industry to promote a sustainable way of doing business.

    SOIL BORN FARMS
    urban agriculture & education project
    www.soilborn.com

     

    At General Truss Company, the by-product from our vent blocks
    are shavings.

     

    • The shavings are then used as bedding material and soil amendments
    at Soil Born Farms. Both Soil Born Farms and General Truss Company
    are supporters of the“Farm-To-Fork” movement throughout
    the Sacramento region.

     

    • Soil Born Farms grew to operate two urban farms on 55 acres in
    Sacramento and Rancho Cordova.  It has evolved into a nationally
    recognized center for the promotion of urban agriculture, sustainable
    food systems and healthy food education.

     

    • The American River Ranch, a 55-acre historic ranch located
    within the American River Parkway, is now the permanent
    home of Soil Born Farms.  It provides a wonderfully diverse landscape
    to engage both youth and adults in hands-on activities that educate and connect
    them with the natural world, healthy food, healthy eating,
    job and life skills, hard work, and service opportunities. 

     

    • The American River Ranch also provides the opportunity to expand
    the production of vegetables and fruit to meet the needs of
    more Sacramento residents, particularly those in underserved
    neighborhoods with little or no access to fresh, nutritious food.
