Mike, for that to work, you would have to pre-stress the 1x4. This would mean that the floor has to be jacked up in the center, and the 1x4 glued and screwed and allowed to dry before the jacks can be removed. Then the glue and screws cannot creep even a little bit or else the whole exercise is useless.

On the other hand, this floor does not need much help...

Rusty, can you see any grade stamps on you joists? Maybe I could sharpen my pencil and do another calculation.
