Pouring concrete for fence posts was tiring enough, thank you very much!

ConstructionFilter: Mounting posts to
concrete, but not in?
posted by InsanePenguin to Home & Garden (17 answers total)
My fiance and I bought a house last May, and when we did so the contractor who owned the home asked us if we would like the concrete slab that was the floor of the (demolished) garage torn up. I said no, because it was in great shape itself and I liked the idea of the parking pad. Great!
But now I'm wanting for something over our cars so I can work on them in the rain and they can be somewhat protected from the elements. I don't, however, want to have to destroy the slab and pour new concrete just to mount posts into.
What resources are available online or otherwise for finding out about mounting corner posts into concrete. Is this, like, possible? I mean, I know I could get brackets and drill holes into the concrete slab and just screw those suckers down, but that can't be strong enough, can it? Has anyone done anything like this? I'm not really looking for a garage, though if I eventually wanted to close in the walls and was able to, that'd be sweet.
