    How to mend joist perforated incorrectly to install electric cables?
    Hi, my basement has several joists with multiple perforations, some on the bottom half of the joist, through which MC cables are routed. I am afraid that inspector will flag this and am willing to reroute the cables. However, the joist holes will be visible. How can I mend them?
