Support installed low - steel deck pounded down to support for puddle welds - still ok?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am dealing with a situation where an LH-joist was 3" low and the top of the steel roof deck was pounded down over the top of the LH-joist so the puddle welds could be made to the support. This looks like it would be ok for gravity. 
 
Does this seriously weaken the diaphragm shear capacity?  Should it be reinforced somehow?
 
Thanks.
