I came across this beam in an inspection I did last evening. I’m already noting the terrible bolting of the posts to this beam but I have concerns with it’s adequacy too. Appears to be 4 2x10s simply nailed together, ends are lined up so there is not offsetting of span overlapping the post, and I didn’t see a drop of construction adhesive.
I’m thinking i’ll recommend a structural contract review at the least. Do I need to call it out any more. Or am I concerned for no reason?
