Questions & Answers

The price that you advertise is a JOKE correct. Why would you raise the price from $29 to $129 then offer $100 off if I

Asked by: abcdefg
This one is stainless steel instead of the galvanized one that's $35. The price might be worth it if you use treated lumber. I used the galvanized ones on treated lumber and they're already corroding and looking pretty bad. The stainless steel one shouldn't corrode if used with treated lumber.

all other post bases are much much lower in price. what makes this one worth 192.00?

I'm needing to anchor 6x6 posts into concrete and want good ones. Would the less expensive ones be good enough?
Asked by: dogdan333
The Home Depot response is incorrect. This product is made of stainless steel and is therefore impervious to rust and will have a substantially longer life. The uplift and downward force characteristics of this product are identical to the zinc product. https://www.strongtie.com/retrofitpostbases_postbases/aba-abu-abw_productgroup_wcc/p/aba.abu.abw

Asked by: beachy
The ABU is designed/tested for wood-to-concrete applications. It is up to the Designer/Engineer of Record to specify the appropriate connector based on framing layout, demand loads, local building code, etc., but the BC40 may be an option. Thank you!
