Looking for a metal post support like the user Earnie has on his deck. We had to replace a porch support, and I'd like it to be off the cement porch so it won't rot as quickly as the last post did. I'd prefer this style, so I don't immediately have to add trim around the bottom to conceal it. I've checked Home Depot/Lowes, but I've not had luck locating this specific style.
can be simply attached with a anchor set into the foundation with epoxy. You want the end of the column up off the concrete so that it cannot wick moisture up into the column. End grain (bottom of column) is know to wick moisture which leads to rot in the wood column.
if you cannot locate these at the big box stores I'd recommend a local lumber yard.
Hope this helps.
