We viewed a home that had steel I Beams. 2 of them were end to end over a support beam but were not spliced, they were only attached to the top of the pillar via 2 bolts per beam.
Very similar to this but steel rather than wood: https://www.familyhandyman.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/FH17ONO_582_20_001.jpg?resize=768,768
There was one odd thing I noticed in which it appeared that the beams were coming apart a forming some what of a V gap directly over the support beam.
Is this cause for concern? It seems like the beams could've been "spliced" together to keep them horizontally aligned.
I only raise this issue because the floor directly above was bowing in this exact spot directly over the support beam on the 1st floor, as was the 2nd story. The 2nd story also had a door which did not close straight in the frame because of the bowing of the floor.
Worried that maybe the V shape is expanding and soon the far ends of both beams may be sinking.
