Why do my calculated member sizes differ from those in your tables?

The PLF load tables and quick sizer tables included in various Weyerhaeuser Specifier's Guides typically give values for even increments in member span, several common load combinations and a few house widths. These combinations are unlikely to match actual jobsite dimensions, so some differences are likely.  More precise member sizing can be accomplished using our Forte® software.
