Plywood Attic Platforms

Hello Tim,

I have a house with a 2x4 roof truss system. I plan on adding more insulation in the attic area. Can I walk on the existing 2x4's without causing damage to the ceiling?

Hello Roy,

You absolutely can walk on the edges of the bottom chord of each truss. But I feel you should cut a piece or two of 3/4 inch plywood that is 16 inches wide by 4 feet long to use as small platforms to work from. If you work without these, you may stumble and pop through to your family below.
