I've read that -- in sistering joists to add strength -- if you're not sistering the complete length of the original joist, you're wasting your time.
I've also read that even sistering along just a portion of the original joist will make a significant difference, as long as you make sure to center your new joist along the length of the old.
Anyone have a clue? Thanks!
