Weakening my floor?


Would it be ok to remove the cross bridging for my ceiling joists for a few days until I can put them back up? There is nothing overly heavy in the room above. Thanks

All there doing is keeping the joist from twisting and reducing floor bouncing if there's a floor above.

Yes, but why are you taking them out?
There not going to to be able to just be put back in unless you have complete access over them/
You would have to replace them with blocking between the joist instead.
