Customer Question

I have a home in Arizona. Single story home. I'm removing a patio door and installing a larger (12 foot) one. Looking for sizing for header beam. The house is 40' wide and I'm placing the door on the exterior load bearing wall. Also there is a 12' wooden patio roof that also will be resting on this header. I would rather error on a header too large that one too small.
