Joist Support

We’ve got metal plates here supporting the joist. They’re very loose and wiggle when touched. What should be here to support the joist instead?


Benn, go to the control panel and add your location.

What are we looking at in this pic for a joist?
Is that a metal Bar Joist?

Need a more panoramic view… :slight_smile:

From my experience, metal shims are allowed, but that example was a little excessive. If the shims are loose, I would be writing it up as not properly supported. Non-shrink grout, possibly, or pressure treated lumber would be a better way to fill that pocket. My opinion only.

Add metal shims, which are acceptable, but non-shrink grout is better.
