Questions & Answers

Can post base be installed on existing concrete slab? How can I installed it?

Can post base be installed on existing concrete slab? How can I installed it?
Asked by: FN
Yes would be my answer... I drilled a hole with a hammer drill, put in some cement specific epoxy in the hole, dropped a stainless steel bolt in, and allowed to cure. Waited for the following weekend to put up a huge pergola, and it’s been solid ever since... I hope that helps
