I am renovating a couple balconies because the existing 2x10 joist from ext to int are decaying. I plan to sister a joist in and am having a difficult time determining how to connect the joist effectively. I can't connect the joist directly to the decaying joist because I cant assume the "bad" joist will transfer the load. However, I also have an issue nailing directly to the diaphragm because I have an 1 1/2" of concrete above the 1/2" plywood. Any ideas on how I can connect the new 2x10 joist and get any values???
