This kit repairs notched, driller or other similar types of floor joists damage without the need to have to remove plumbing or wiring which may go through the joist and without the need to sister alongside another joist.. The kits consist of a steel strap that is screwed to the bottom of the floor joists. The kits comes with everything needed including the strap, screws, drill bit for pre-drilling the holes and a ratchet driver to install the screws. Once the strap is installed it will restore the full strength of the floor joists. There is an engineered design report available that can be provided to a Building Department if required.
Couldn't ask for better
Used the product to fix a joist and the bldg inspector was skeptical until I showed the video and the credentials of the engineer (designer). Saved me major bucks. Also appreciated that all tools needed were included and that it was shipped quickly. Usually I don't write reviews but this simple product was great.
2 weeks and have not received item
I have called and emailed the office 3x and gotten no response. USPS cannot locate the package. Was depending on priority shipping to repair a space in our foundation. Had to reschedule everything for 4 weeks out because of this. Happy to update or modify this review if someone will get back to me and let me know what’s going on.
I used to splice a joist where I couldn't raise into place in one piece. Being able to install from below made the job much easier for me. Good product and good support from the engineer.
My local engineer had to stamp but he approved
This is a very stout structural tie and I'm honestly not sure why this product or something like it isn't available in big-box stores. I will definitely use Nolan products again.
