Beam Far Too Small For The Load

DSCN1669This young man is quite proud of his house, which he purchased on a few months prior. You can see what he wanted repaired, and the sagging of the structural beam over the garage door is obvious. As it happens, the beam was far too small for the load it was expected to carry – most likely, there were originally two doors rather than just one wide door. Anyway, CSES made one short visit to his home, and put together a package of sketches and calculations that were needed to obtain a permit for the repair work. We also recommended a couple of good contractors we know. The repair is now done, and he is quite happy with the outcome.
