Failure to Install Header
I failed to install a header on a wall that I thought it non bearing but ended up being load bearing because of a ridge beam.
The window top currently has a 2×6 horizontally placed and is already sheathed and tyveked from the outside. I am thinking about putting a 1/4” piece of steel across it to help prevent deflection under snow loads. I need some advice, thanks guys!
