Roof Truss Stress Tests
Matt Blashaw uses a monster truck to test the performance of roof trusses. This video is part of Deconstruction show hosted by Matt Blashaw . SHOW DESCRIPTION :Deconstruction explores the science behind home improvement. By conducting wild experiments, making lots of noise and engaging in some serious pyrotechnics, host and handyman Matt Blashaw dissects the who, what, where, how and why of the do-it-yourself world. How does pressurized treated wood get pressure-treated? How strong is tempered glass and how is it made? Is home insulation really fire retardant? With field trips to research labs and testing facilities and by doing some fun testing of his own, Deconstruction follows a unique mission: to understand what you're building, sometimes you need to take it apart.
