    • Hello westnorton....how were the 6_6 post fastened to the concrete and how well do you feel about the strength and longevity of this application

    • I used 5/8" galvanized wedge bolts to anchor the post bases to the concrete. I walked across the top of this pergola to put in all of the screws to secure the 2 x 6's and 2 x 4's. I feel very confident that this is a solid project that will last for many years.

    • OK wesnorton sounds good to me.....I have to investigate those wedge bolts that you refer too.....my pergola, if I ever build it will be free standing on an existing concrete patio without the added stability of being anchored t any side to a structure
