Turned up to a job to look at why the floor had a 2 inch gap between the floor and skirting. As you can see in the photo someone has had a go at trying to repair the problem and not done very good job. The two joists they repaired have now rotted. They should also of jacked up the ceiling from below to level the floor back to the original level. The law has now changed. We now have to fit all joists in hangers which stops the joists rotting. Every joist should of been repaired or replaced along that wall. The people below were lucky that whilst watching eastenders their neighbours didnt pop in from the ceiling above!!
