Headers & Beams
Each building is designed with the specific headers and beams needed to carry the roof load. We choose the best material for the required load in each specific geographical area.
We predominantly use #1 Yellow Pine and Machine Stress Rated (MSR) materials. LVL or Glu-Lam beams are utilized when the load requirement over a doorway or opening exceeds the capabilities for 2x headers.
Beam sizing is determined by the size of the building, opening, and the snow load requirements.Build With Us »
