I've noticed in my loft today one of the main wooden beams is quite badly split, all the way through. there is a gap of approx 3-4mm. there is also a lot of light coloured patches on the wood, not sure if that means anything.
does this sound normal or with such a split in a main beam does it need something doing to it?
