At BUCO, all roofs are designed to suit the needs of our consumers; using our prefabricated roof trusses will give your house so much value in the event that you want to sell it. It will have value because your roof is of high quality. To make this possible for your home, site measurements are taken to make sure you attain correct dimensions. All timber components are cut using computerised saws. Assembly is in jigs to ensure accuracy.
