Running sheathed electrical cable in unfinished basement/attic through joists


Posted by Steve C. on April 11th, 1999 02:57 PM

I have to run some sheathed electrical cable in my unfinished basement. I know code says I can't run it across the joists I would have to run it through (and keep it far enough in to avoid nail damage). My question is there a point at which you could structurally harm the joists by drilling holes in them?
