Welcome to the Team Engineering Blog

We want you to be part of our Team! Follow us as we post new blogs about our upcoming projects, construction tips and advice, engineering concepts, and company events.

Our blogs are intended to get you further educated on building construction straight from our Professional Engineers, Architects, Inspectors, and Project Managers at Team. Ever wonder how an ice dam occurs? What exactly is an LVL and why is it so strong? When do I need a structural ridge?

We’ll take some of the most common questions and industry misconceptions we hear and give you our expert opinions. The information we will provide is intended for general informational purposes only, but if you have a project specific question, contact us and speak to one of our licensed Professional Engineers today!

New concrete footings were required to withstand the added roof load. Team provided realistic 3D… Read More »

Installing Closed Cell Spray Foam in Lifts

Closed-cell 2-lb/ft3 (32 kg/m3)… “high density” spray polyurethane foam has tremendous adhesive and strength properties as well as high thermal resistance and airtightness. This type of spray foam is often installed on the underside of roof sheathing and if the bond between the closed cell spray foam and the underside of the roof sheathing fails,… Read More »

LVLs Rated For Interior (Dry-Use) and Exterior Use

At Team Engineering, we typically specify engineered lumber products manufactured by Weyerhaeuser. When considering beams spanning long distances and where built-up dimensional lumber isn’t practical, we immediately turn to LVL beams. Microllam® LVLs and TimberStrand® LSLs are appropriate for dry-use applications where the beam is not going to be directly exposed to precipitation. These beams… Read More »
