So far the joists seem ok, and I have peace of mind knowing they are there. So happy to get these from Nolan Structural products.
Ordering from Nolan was very easy and pickup was great. I had my baby with me and staff volunteered to carry the plate to my car. The quality of this product and ease of use made this project an easy one. I appreciate Nolan and their professionalism.
I was satisfied with the product. I think they sent the wrong Simpson Titan anchor. I had to go buy a 23 mm socket to install it. And that was not what was described. But base ended up with a stronger anchor bolt, so no harm I guess, other than I had to buy a socket, which added $15 to the cost.
This Joist Reinforcer was exactly what I needed to strengthen two 2"x10" joists that were weakened by an overzealous plumber. Installation was quick and easy with the provided pilot bit, driver bit, and fasteners. The only suggestion I can make is to mark the drill bit for depth so that the pilot holes don't go all the way through the joist. My first joist looks like swiss cheese from the back side, now. On the second joist I learned my lesson and left the pilot holes about 1/4" from clearing through the joist. It makes for a much cleaner look. Thanks for a great product!
I love this joist repair. It is easy and straightforward, it is very much needed for complete confidence when you are not an expert carpenter. The best part about it was fixing previous plumbing cuts in the master bedroom in the attic which were very deep, and definitely not to code. This fixes that problem and gave me peace of mind.
