I have a room above my garage that is 10 x 20 ft. It is supported by 2 beams made of at least 3 2x10s nailed together maybe four. the beams span about 23 ft.
So I need post on the garage floor to support the center of the beams?
I would like to remove my post to pour a new cement floor in the garage.

The so is a typo it should have said DO I need post on the garage floor to support the center of the beams?And even if I do, is it safe to remove them for maybe a week or two while the old cement floor is being torn and and replaced with new cement?

Hello. I can help with this, but the question is very underpriced. I can submit a premium service offer if you'd like to continue.

No. I rather get a refund. I just wanted a general simple answer. I would not be willing to pay more for an on-line answer to a situation that has not really been looked at physically. It would be a guess only, not a true professional opinion based on facts.
Thanks but no thanks
