replacing carport supports with 4x4 pt posts
 
I am screening in my carport and i am replacing the rusty wrought iron supports with pt 4x4s as corner posts of the screened area on the front only (the back is a brick wall). building inspector says that i need to anchor the posts to the concrete. whats the easiest and cheapest way to do this? the roof will be sufficiently supported all around so i just want to meet code and move on>>>hopefully no cocrete cutting and re-pouring.

post achors. there are different types, so ask which one is acceptable.

so that's it? obviously drill into the concrete and secure the anchor and then secure to post, right? thanks!

Yeah, there are some models that raise the post up off the cement to keep it away from water.

Like I said, ask the inspector which one he/she reccomends you use.

I will, thanks for the quick reply.

I think it's the one that's off the ground a bit. what does that one look like?

post anchors - top
 
I now have to anchor the top of all of my screen porch posts. what's the cheapest, easiest to install product to use for this. I have an existing roof structure...it's a carport.
