Patio cover


Hello I am building a trussed patio cover that need a 30 psf dead load for snow. Is it possible to span a 21 foot opening with lvl?What size would I need? I can not find any lvl span charts. I am trying to avoid any middle post in my cover if possible. Thanks

Sorry the lvl will be acting as the beam to support the trusses.

If your buying trusses why not just buy the ones for the 30 LB load?
What's an LVL got to do with a Truss?

got a sketch of what you are building? your truss manufacturer should be able to size the beam for you.
