Are raised-heel trusses worth it?
I am in Northern Utah and working with a local builder to do a semi-custom single story ranch home with a full basement. Specs are:
2100 sq. ft. main level
9 ft. ceilings on main and basement
Standard OSB (taped)/Tyvek
Blown in fiberglass
I requested a quote for 12″ raised-heel trusses and the quote came in at $4000. Does this sound accurate. I know there is increased cost for truss design, sheathing, siding etc. If this is accurate, does it make sense as a ROI energy efficiency-wise? Comfort-wise?
Thanks for any help!
