I am Looking at a home built late 1979 Its a Round Great Room living/kitchen combined with Sliding Patio doors all around.
Center Beam is Beige (ok laugh) looks like plastic and I do not know how to research it? I also wonder if it is sound
Any help Please
I wouldn't know beyond being a support for the roof or to retain the walls so the roof didn't blow them out. Consult an Architect, Engineer or Building Framer...a Home Inspector or Roofer won't be qualified AT ALL in such an abnormal structural design. Though, almost 60-years says a lot about the design and the beam being perfectly sound.
