That stamp is just the lumber grade stamp Ior LVL info if it's LVL. Not enough to tell) It it's TrusJoist/ Weyerhaeuser, it'll say so on the web. Probably Boise, too. Are there any web marks at all? Does it have perforations for knock-outs? Web stiffeners? Any other info like LVL flanges, plywood or OSB webs?|

I've come across a job which has I joists on it which may be failing, but I'd like to know what I'm actually dealing with before I start crying wolf. Does anyone know if this stamp is from an I-joist mfr, and if so if it has any relevance in determining the joist grade. If I can get a mfr, I can go from there if necessary (the contractor is cheap beyond all reason, so it's safe to assume the weakest grade made in this case).
Delicious ideas to please the pickiest eaters. Watch the video on AOL Living.
