Beam Sizes For Load Bearing Walls?

Answer

Beam sizes for load bearing walls can vary depending on how much the beam has to hold up and how large the wall is. A load bearing beam can be used when a wall is knocked down to open up a room. This beam drops down from the ceiling, but prevents the ceiling from collapsing. Sizes for these beams can typically be 16 or 17 feet, but again this is just an estimate and the sizes can vary. Beams for load bearing walls can be purchased at major hardware stores like Home Depot or Lowe's.
