sagging floor joists
i have an older one story home with basement. the floor joists are 2x8's and span 16 feet. over time they have sagged in the center. the foundation is fine, merely the age of the joists have caused them to bow downward in the center. i would like to replace my floors and want it to be level without replacing the joists,which are still fine structurally. my proposed solution is to cut 3/4” 4x8 plywood into 8’ long 8" high strips and attach these on both sides of each of my existing floor joists with construction adhesive and screws and staggering the plywood lengths on each side, in effect having one side comprised of 4'+8'+4' lengths and the other side of the same joist comprised of 8'+8' length.will this be structurally sound?
