BEAMS/ LINTELS/ RSJ etc etc !!

AS you can see from my name i'm no building expert.
I have unfortunately found out recently i have a long term problem with my roof valleys and water has been leaking into my loft and soaked through the celing of my bedroom and that the beam running along my bedroom ceiling closest to the front window is extremely damp.
How do i find out if this beam is steel or timber ?
Can it be dried out ?
Will it have to be replaced ?
How much would this cost ?? Help!
I realise i already have to pay for new valleys which scared me but now somone has suggested the beam would potentiall be the bigger job! Ouch!
