Customer Question

JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Thanks for helping me I want to place a hot tub on my patio. Tge patio is 4 feet above ground built on 2x 8 joists every 16 inches, mounted on a beam. The beam is 3 pieces of 2 x 10. The way the tub would be placed = 36inches would extend on one side of the beam and 52 inches on the other side. The tub is 88 inches x 80 inches and weight 4,469 lbs when full of water. Is the patio strong enough to hold the tub?
