Pouring Patio Slab and Post Footings Question


Hi GBR,

Thanks for the details. As for method #2 , the Simpson Strong Tie does have a model that gives you the same 1" metal bracket (see image below)as the hardware noted in Method #1. So with this model, one can go P.T. or non-P.T. However based on what Willie said, I will mostlikely forgo using this as its a bit more technical.

Remember to thicken the edges of the slab at the posts for load
Yes, great tip. I never considered that.

Thanks again GBR,
Moe

No reason to shy away from any particular installation. Just be sure to get whatever you put in straight, plumb, and square.
