I asked a question a few weeks ago about a diagonal crack in one of our main support beams in our basement. With your advise I ended up have a structural engineer come take a look at it and he recommends screwing another 2x10 to it so it doesn’t crack any further.
Is this something I would be able to do myself? Would I have to have a someone come out to do it since that’s a loan bearing beam? I’m not a pro by any means but this seems so simple. I’m not sure the best way to go about this since the framing for the wall butts up against that beam. How would you tackle this? Should the framing for that wall be moved so the entire beam can be sistered?
I put a few photos from the report the structural engineer gave.
