Nailing Schedule for LVL header.

blownonfuel's picture

Is there a nailing schedule for LVL headers (garage door)?

Also are they end nailed or toe nailed in place?

As always, thanks.

check out http://www.ilevel.com/literature/TJ-9000.pdf. 1 3/4" beams less than 14" deep, Microllams require 3 rows of 10d nails 12" oc. Check with your supplier though if you want to be sure.
