New Construction of Garage


Concrete contractor "forgot" to put in anchor bolts for my wall, concrete has now cured, what's the best way to now anchor my sill plate to the concrete.

Thanks Bill

Interior wall, drill and use deformed shank pins, "Rawl" brand. Exterior wall will need wedge anchors if code allows in your area, some areas will not accept anything less than anchor bolts sets in the wet concrete.

IRC codes allow for "wedge style" attachments to concrete....impress the inspector with 1/2 inch bolts 6 inches long, and follow the guidelines for spacing....it is a standard that we anchor each side of a corner, each side of a jamb, and work out spacing on walls to 6 feet or so.

BTW, I build new homes and I do not use J bolts. We drill and set wedges.
