What is the maximum deflection for the areas of my house with hardwood flooring and carpet? The floor joists on this addition have a 23' clear span, and I can achieve l/512 total load deflection. My concern is that the absolute total load deflection is .53" (live load deflection is .42"). Do you think this amount of deflection would produce any negative effects?
