floor joist defect ?

Posted by Tim on March 1st, 2001 10:14 PM

I have two doubled 2x10's floor joists on each side of my basement stairs. On one side, one of the 2X10's does not rest on the steel I-beam. I plan to supplement the 2x10 that is on the I-beam by sistering a third 2x10, and running it 9 feet back from the I_beam. Then bolting the three 2x10's together. The other side of the stairs is fine. The house was built in 1969, and there no sagging of the floor at this time. Is this a good solution to prevent any future problem?
(fourteen foot span)
