Contractor cut LVL w flitch plate

2 months ago

So our contractor installed this LVL with flitch plate and cut it at the end. There was plenty of room for the beam and it definitely didn’t need to be cut like this. Maybe a small corner. Our engineer came by to look and thought it was OK. But I wanted to throw it out there for others to weigh in.

Our new carpenter suggested adding a custom steel L bracket (8x6 and 1/2” thick) under it to add support.
