What should be used for final sealer?
Is there a reason the framer decided to nail 2x's together rather than just install an appropriate sized beam out of solid stock? It wasn't mentioned as I could see, if the boards were also glued when nailed together, shear factor goes straight to the nailing pattern. Poor idea at best.
