Long Notched Joists Proper Way To Distet


This house Iím working on (itís a flip) has two notched joists from the fluorescents lights the previous owner put in 40 years ago. They had a dropped ceiling.
There is no issue with floors or anything but obviously it will come up in a buyers inspection. What would you do to sister it? Go full 14í leangthe or just 3í beyond the notch. (Itíll be easier for me).

Well, it's all about what's easiest for you, what's quick, and above all, what's cheap.

So just scab a short piece of wood up there, any ol' piece of scrap, a couple 8d nails, (not too many, they cost money), cover that $#!T up, and move along.

I think tape would be easier/cheaper after all he is a flipper

Can't edit that topic header should say "sister the joist" Uncalled comment about the tape; afterall they don't make tape strong enough and thick enough. I wouldn't have posted this question if I didn't care to look into getting it done right, whether I did it or someone else. I don't flip per say, but take a neglected house and turn it into a home for someone and when I do....it's something I'm proud of and would have no worries of anyone living there. I don't find a spliced wire in the wall or hidden junctions and say "ahh nobody will every know" I say, this needs to be done right"

So back to the joist, I thought of running the full length one with it but no i-beam space for it to rest unless I added another support post. But I would assume just going 3' ft. over each way should suffice. bolting then some nails (the real EXPENSIVE kind of nails because afterall its a flip and all I care is about making the most money {sarcasm})
