Repair of Water Damaged LVL Beams

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
My supervisor asked me to take a look at some water damaged beams at his 
house.  The beams are LVL lumber and appear to be two 1 ¾" wide x 18" deep 
 beams sistered together.  One beam has experienced a fairly large loss of 
section and some of the others have small areas that appear bad.  Other than 
 complete replacement ( with its associated $$$) are there any ways to repair 
 LVL lumber?  I realize that the beam that has lost a lot of its section 
will need replacement.
