Residential Home Beam Calculations
what's a beam calculation?
Beams are the primary structural
support for any structure. Beams support the roof, support
the floors as well as providing support for large open spans
such as great rooms or garage door openings. To provide a
safe structural support such beams need to be calculated based
on length of span, how much weight the span has to support,
including snow loads, and material used in the beam, along
with other factors.
We utilize computer programs on-site to calculate
simple or advanced beam spans. We can calculate beams in dimensional
wood in any species, LVL lumber, and steel beams in many shapes
such as I-beams.
Beam calculation areas include:
- Main structural beams
- Window and door headers
- Garage door headers
- Floor joist
- Cantilever beams
All project calculation include printouts for
the homeowner, contractor and code official. Additional printouts
are available at a minimal cost.
