Beam dimensions for a span of 16 feet

Posted by Jay Weitekamp on April 23rd, 2001 08:20 PM

I'm building a free standing patio cover and I need to
what dimensions for a beam that will span 16 feet. I will
be using Load bearning columns (HB&G Permacast). I was told
I could use 4X8 without worrying about sagging. This beam
won't be load bearing all that much. basically the 2X6 spaced
every 3 feet with 2x2 cross latice on top

Any suggestions
