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.

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.

Re: Pouring Patio Slab and Post Footings Question


Gentlemen. Resurrecting an old thread here. Please take a look at these pictures.

My home is still under warranty. Do I need to have them come out and re-do these porch columns? I took off some siding at the bottom to find water logged beams.

I'm certain the posts are secured to galvanized post bases, but they are under the slab, attached to the footings. They obviously just poured the slab higher up and let the concrete flow right up against the beam.

I'm concerned water will continue to attack these beams.

Anyway to seal this area against water?

Re: Pouring Patio Slab and Post Footings Question


To my novice eye, seems like a bad design. I'd check to see if that is to code for your city.
