The one that is notched is a parallam or (PSL) and one picture shows a PSL with the LVL x 2.

Observe and report, this mess speaks for itself. If I were your client I’d have to pass on this holiday Turkey . Jmho

The sparkle could be from the use of Bora care. It is used to treat for fungi, and mold.

These shims are full width of the beam and almost the length of the piers but almost 2.5" thick.
What are your thoughts on this?

I have no problem with it. Better than most I see.
