Sawn Beam Repair?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Bill Allen,

A steel plate on the bottom, with lag screws into the beam should
work.  If the beam was heavily loaded, I would have concern about the
amount of wood that the lag screws would have removed, but with a
lightly loaded beam, that should not be any problem.

I, too, would be reluctant to use a nailed connection.
