Sometimes. No.

If you are using hard plastic spacers, simply measure them to determine their size. If you are using soft plastic spacers, stop doing that.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Have you evaluated the joist structure?

No such thing as a partial demo and rebuild, Ravin, unless you're just patching it until a more convenient time for the rebuild.

My opinion; worth price charged.
