To anchor posts to concrete footings, you need to use a post base connector. Whether you’re using natural, decay-resistant or preservative-treated wood, it’s recommended that posts be elevated off the concrete by 1 inch to help prevent decay at the end of the post due to moisture.
Use a drill with a hammer drill bit to install a concrete sleeve anchor into the center of the concrete footing.
Install the Simpson Strong Tie ABE66Z Adjustable Post Base to the sleeve anchor and tighten the bolt to secure the attachment.
Set the 6x6 Pressure Treated Post onto the post base and attach by nailing the side flanges to the support post.
