Attaching LVLs to beams


SISTERING with the new beam NOT resting on the support column.

Gotcha...this is why this forum is dangerous. This guy obviously needs an architect or engineer....permits and inspections. Alot of people who ask questions like this have no intention of doing that.

Agreed. And that's why I think this discussion board does a lot of good by pointing folks in the right direction (engineers, permit office, alternate hobbies), even if some end up ignoring the advice and driving themselves into a ditch.

Here in Canada we laminate LVLs to the side of Timberstrand beams to build up and create a higher load capacity.. I have done it one time and the engineer had it on the structural prints..

The question is whether both rest on the support column. If they do, then we're ok. I'm not questioning that beams, even of different types, are combined.
