Adding Additional Fasteners To Joist Attached To CMU Wall
I am in the process of repairing some framing in our crawlspace due to mold and rot. I have replaced all the 2x6Âs in one section of the floor, but will retain the last one secured by Hilti pins to the CMU wall. The pressure treated joist appears to be in good shape except for some light mold, but the pins and washers are badly corroded. With the adjacent joist removed this would be a good time to add additional fasteners. What do you recommend? I was thinking of using Â½" HDG wedge bolts. I could just drill a Â½" hole straight through the 2x6 into the CMU wall. How far should I drill into the CMU wall? Is there a better way to do this?
Thank you for taking the time to read my post and consider my questions,
