How Are Floor Joists Attached To The Wall Frames?

Getting ready to build your dream home or next project? That’s great news. Every project has its own requirements, including attaching floor joists to wall frames. The First thing that you should consider is to get help and guidance from a manufacturer of timber roof trusses and wall frames. They will quickly help you with the ‘what’s’ and the ‘how’s’ of construction for your project.

For example, in the course of construction you’ll come across floor joists. As a builder or an owner builder, you must be familiar with the term. Floor joists are horizontal pieces of wood that span from beam to beam, wall to beam and wall to wall. These, in addition to floor framing systems give rigidity to the sheathing or outer covering of the sub floor. They also help to resisting deformation, due to load.

What needs to be done to attach the floor joists to the wall frames? Firstly, bolt the foundation to the sill of the plate and fasten it by nailing through it at an angle. The plate of the sill is the board that is laid directly on top of the wall of the foundation. Second, bolt the plate to the wall of the foundation using anchor bolts or joist hangers. In the event you have difficulty, ask for help from a skilled and experienced manufacturer of timber roof trusses and wall frames.
