Re: Strengthening Ceiling Joists

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have strengthened and stiffened joists by screwing and gluing 2x6's to the underside of the joists, making an inverted T. This was done where headroom was available in a basement with a hung ceiling, thereby obviating any need to relocate ducts, pipes and wiring. The result was very effective.
