Load Bearing Wall Pros won the “Best in Show Award” at the Collin County Home and Garden Show. Pretty cool deal. Our booth featured LVL microlam beams made by Anthony Forest Products. We were able to demonstrate how load bearing wall removal is done in the DFW metroplex to all of the show visitors.

Joist Hanger used by Load Bearing Wall Pros

SSTtha218

Above is a Simpson Strong Tie THA218-2. Pretty exciting, huh?!?!? We use this joist hanger to connect the ceiling joists to our LVL, gluelam, paralam or Microlam beam in the attic over the wall that is to be removed. These allow the ceiling joist to hang off of the structural beam that is spanning the area where the load bearing wall is to be removed. This is the product that makes an appearance on almost all of our DFW wall removal jobs. See…..I knew you would like the THA218!
