I want to bolt posts to a concrete patio to make a roof. The surface of the concrete has texture to it. I figured the texture is meant for a better grip in wet weather.
Should I smooth out the concrete areas where posts will be, so the bracket and concrete have full surface contact or is it fine to bolt brackets as it is?
If I should - would some watery cement/sand mix do the job? Texture is 1mm pores at most, I was thinking of filling those up with cement or other solution.
