I am looking at a new house to buy and it has two major issues I don't think I'll tackle myself: 1) Installing a metal roof.
And the reason for questioning: 2) Rotted joists in the basement laundry room. It's causing sloping upstairs based on one report. I'm assuming because of this they need to be replaced? Or would the sistering method work?
How much am I looking at cost wise here to talk down the seller? Would the flooring upstairs need to be cut out?
I would suggest you have some people physically look at the area. Replacement is the best because everything would be new. Sistering can work but the rot remains plus you may not know the original cause, which may be a structural issue down the road and a health issue ... on-going. Get some local input and cost estimates for your ideas. Best of luck.
