Asked by Del May 27, 2020

We poured a concrete footing around the perimeter of the slab for our pergola. We recommend footings to support the vertical load from the posts and transfer that load to the soil. However, a qualified designer can evaluate whether a slab is adequate for your specific design. Thank you!

What do I do if my beam is more narrow than the ledge of the bracket? I have a small gap because ...

Why is this designed for 2" non-nominal lumber?
These would be so perfect if they are made for typical wood. When you buy a 2x10 beam, it is 1.5" thick. This thing is literally 2" so when you put your bolts in it has to bend it to snug up - but it doesn't bend evenly, that isn't possible with the design so you have an ugly gap at the bottom of each one. That bending also created an issue where the special washers would no longer line up.. it is a really bad design. For the price, this is really disappointing. Even where this specifies "2x rough lumber", the "rough lumber" cedar from HD is 1.6" thick. I see another reviewer saying the same thing.

Who uses 2 inch thick treated lumber?
These were purchased to build a pergola. We used standard 2-by lumber, which of course is only 1-1/2" thick. On the specifications it does give a depth of 2", which is true, if one is using only the space for the lumber and the post. The full depth is actually 2-3/16". It is stiff enough that it is not possible to snug it up to a 2x8, leaving at least a 1/4th inch gap between it and the board or between the 2x8 and the post! Not very attractive.

The Accents really dressed up my patio cover. In addition to the fact that they are very strong in serving their purpose and were very easy to install.Wish there we many more Strong Ties in their line-up that were powder coated for accent.
