There are two types of floor joists: solid and engineered. Solid joists are made of a single piece of wood, while engineered joists are made of multiple pieces of wood laminated together. Engineered joists are stronger and more stable than solid joists, making them ideal for use in homes with second floors or basement apartments.
When choosing floor joists, it is important to consider the span of the joists. The span is the distance between supports, such as walls or beams. The longer the span, the greater the load that the joists will need to support.
