Hi all, I have a joist in my living room (near patio doors) that flexes by a quite a few mm when i press hard with my foot (the floor creaks when I walk on this bit).
I've checked the joist and it doesnt appear to be any rot.
Can I do as someone suggested and put a small paving flag down below the joist and put a length of 4" X 2" between the two to brace it and firm it up?
Is there a better or more permanent solution?
I'm looking for a quick fix that would last a few years as I don't think it's a big enough job to warrant taking up floor boards and replacing joists....yet!!!
