I have a load bearing wall downstairs and I want to take a part of it out. I need certified professional advice on the support I have to hold the beam up. Or do I need more support framed in?
What you need to do is get a blue print drawn up and need to get it stamped (approved by) an engineer to make sure whatever you're replacing the wall with (probably a lvl or steel beam) is structurally sound to carry the load that is sitting on it.
