did I ruined a support Joist?
I had a contractor come to install a wire in my house from 1st floor to basement's power box. he drilled a hole that edged the side of the joist next to the floor wall. It is a townhouse(with houses on both sides to my). Is the wall in danger of collapse? the drilled hole is about 1 inch or so and the joist is a 9 1/2 inch x 2 1/2 inch. What should I do?
