Construction Performance Guidelines
SPRINGINESS, BOUNCE, VISIBLE SAG WHEN LOADED, OR SHAKING IS OBSERVED IN THE FLOOR
These conditions are acceptable when all structural members including beams and joists are sized, installed and fastened in accordance with the Building Code.
One-Year - Work and Materials. Two-Year - Ontario Building Code Health & Safety Violations
Floors not meeting the performance condition shall be repaired.
Long-spanned floor joists will normally move more than short-spanned joists under design loads. The conditions can be assessed by determining the performance under loading conditions; measuring the length of the structural member and dividing by 360 will give the maximum deflection allowed.
