        *Subject:* Need specification for exterior GLB

        I need to specify an exterior GLB that will be treated after
        installation to resist exposure to sun and the elements in a
        desert climate (average to be less an 16% relative humidity
        and as low as 5% in summer). The GLB is to support the edge of
        a patio cover and has a long cantilever on one side 8-feet,
        17.5-feet between supports and 2-foot cantilever at the other
        end.  The GLB will be supported to a 12-inch square concrete
        column that fills a cavity of a manufactured stone surround. I
        will use the columns (2 columns) to resist lateral load per
        the 1997 UBC using an R of 2.2 for the flagpole design of the
        concrete columns. The manufacter of the stone surround
        recommends the fill using vertical steel (calculated to be
        4-#6 vertical rebar and a #3 cage with an embedded column cap
        at the top. The foundation turns out to be 24-inch square x
        3’-9” below grade and a patio flatwork will prevent lateral
        movement of the top of the foundation. The roof is designed
        for a metal roofing, 2x8 DF#2 rafters @ 16” o.c. and the sides
        and bottom finished with metal lath and stucco (although the
        designer wanted to use an exterior GLB but I did not feel it
        had the life that stucco can provide in this area).

        I don’t know if the GLB will be painted or simply sealed with
        a preservative to prevent it from getting gray due to exposure
        to the sun. I have the AITC documents for preservatives and
        the wood used most in this area is DF/DF. I need a more
        specific recommendation (V3, V8 etc) and seem to recall, but
        can not locate the specification for a Visually Graded lumber
        that I think is a V8 when the end condition is cantilevered.

        Can anyone point me to the appropriate document or give me an
        idea how to specify this? Would I be better off with a
        Parallam and if so, the deflection calculated can be as high
        as close to 1-inch and I would need to add a camber. I do know
        that commercial grade Parallams can be ordered with a camber
        but the question my client will have is time and availability.
        Any suggestions quickly?

        Thanks

        Dennis
