BCL has construction assemblies vs. individual materials, so you wouldn't find just "wire mesh there", it is possible that it would be included as part of a fenestration construction, but I don't think they have screens included. Also the BCL doesn't contain structural components like roof trusses. If you include those in your energy model either as internal mass or for dayligthing, you could define your own constructions and surfaces to represent the trusses.

thank @David Goldwasser i already download the attic construction set from the construction assemblies and use it, but when i made my layer materials for roof construction didn't find the wire mesh and roof trusses. can i ignore these two layers while i use the attic construction set?? if not, how can i define my truss???

and for attic floor i download the construction set and assign it as interior ceiling, is it right?

Yes, to either assign it to the ceiling of the space below the attic, or the floor of the attic.
