office asked me about pressure-treating glulams
for exterior exposure. I don't know the specifics of her project, but
she was told that each lamination needed to be individually
pressure-treated prior to fabrication instead of just the exterior of
the finished beam getting the treatment. Is this true? Is it due to a
limitation of the pressure-treating equipment or are the joints
susceptible to decay?
