As I get ready to make sub-beams with 2x12's (2 & 3 wide), someone plopped a SelectTem LVL pamphlet on my desk. I've never used LVL's and don't really know anything about them other than they cost more than regular lumber.
Without wading through the numbers, is there a typical LVL equivalent to a 2x12? Two 2x12's? Three 2x12's?
My spans are around 10'.
"Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success." --Albert Schweitzer
Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.
