|The tear down of this homeowner's ceiling|
revealed the absence of joist hangers
While undertaking this renovation at a client’s home recently, our contractors were shocked at what they found when they removed the popcorn ceiling drywall. Monarch president Neil Samson was called to the job site to confirm what our experienced contractors had noticed immediately. During the construction of the home, some very important pieces were absent: on an entire section of joists, the joist hangers were missing! There was nothing holding the joists to the structural beams except a few nails.
Here is an example of how the structural beams in a home should look like. Notice the metal brackets holding the joists to the beam.
