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.
Printed carbon on common plywood. What a crock, I was hoping for a full piece of carbon. Don’t bother with this guy, now I have to take another road to fix. Damn crook.
Hi Fred, we're sorry you weren't happy with your order, however our product description states that the core of the plate is plywood. We have also included a link to the design report in the product description. We don't misrepresent our product at all, it just requires a bit of reading.
I installed the straps on joists damaged by an HVAC install. They were easy to install and they work great. They saved me the hassle of moving the HVAC pipes. Great support from Rich and his team.
I had made an error in my order, and they helped me out quickly and with no trouble.
