I heard you on Saturday talk about the benefits of metal structures. We have beams to change to the ceiling of the floor below the attic. Can we replace them with metal beams? It would not be all the ceiling and they would be hidden by a ceiling?
To replace your beams, use a professional carpenter who will guide you in the choice of the most suitable material. Metal beams have many advantages: they are quick to assemble, have smaller sections, they are stronger and lighter than wood and are not likely to be attacked by termites or insect larvae (capricorn, lyctus, twigs, etc.). Their only drawback is the "industrial" side they give to the place, but yours will be hidden by the false ceiling, so nothing stands in the way of this installation, if it is done by a professional.
