Structural Beams Are Required In Many Renovations
Open concept home designs are favoured today. To achieve this look, modification of structural walls is often required. Structural beams are an integral element to wall systems planning and design, so your rooms will look the way you want.
Two products are used for 2 different situations:
LVL (Laminated veneer lumber) Structural Beam
- An LVL beam i used for 90% of interior load-bearing partition spans. Over time (generations), Lvl will eventually deflect and sag.
Steel I-beam Structural Beam
- A Steel I-beam is used solely in modern new-build construction, such as a home addition. It does not deflect or sag over time.
