On One Hand: Consistency is QualityGlulam beams are stronger than regular wood beams because the members composing the glulam are of higher quality than the whole of a regular wood beam; there are fewer checks, knots and other inconsistencies. Furthermore, the glue binding the glulam beam is much stronger than wood and adds structural integrity to the member.On the Other: Wood is GoodA continuous, flawless grade of wood is stronger than a glulam beam because there are no connections open to failure.
