Forum Title: Sistering Joists
Mornin', My house is built using 2 x 8 joists with an approximate span of 12 1/2 feet spaced 16 oc. This is fine but there seems to be a lot of deflection, when I walk around on the 1st floor, I can hear things rattle. I was thinking about sistering maybe every other joist but I won't be able to sister the entire length. My question is, Do you guys think this would do anything or be worth the effort? Thanks in advance for helping out a dumb plumber
