We are building a garage 32 feet and 16 feet wide 2 by 6

Customer Question

We are building a garage 32 feet long and 16 feet wide 2 by 6 rafter roof with a 6/12 pitch. The drawings call for three 2 by 8 for ridge board and and cieiling 2 by 6 16 feet long at 16 inch centre. I would like to use an 34 foot LVL to replace the ridge board. What size LVL would I need.
JA: OK. Is there anything else the Structural Engineer should be aware of?
Customer: There is a 9 foot garage door at one end
