TIE beam vs. Bonded Beam

Posted by Christine on June 18th, 2000 08:09 AM

Hi, we are planning on building a new home soon and are torn between two demons.
I should mention we live in Florida, hurricane capital of the world. The city we are planning to build in reqires 6" bonded beam construction.
The builder we want to use pours 16". The other builder we have been contemplating (although we don't like their attitude and disorganization)
uses poured tie beam and claims it is stronger. Can anyone shed light on this? Thanks in advance, Christine
