The strength of the structure starts with its foundation, which in the case of a post-frame building are the laminated columns. The columns carry the weight of the building, providing the “legs” that support and stabilize everything above ground. Like most building materials, laminated wood columns come in different strengths. It’s important to understand that size alone doesn’t measure the strength of a column; there are several factors involved:

  • Type of lumber used (visual grades or machine graded)
  • Method of laminating the column (stitched or glued)
  • Stitching (and plating) pattern for lamination
