So I plan on using the Simpson Strong-Tie Model PBS44AZ post base. Further below are picture of what the base looks like.
They recommend installing as follows: Install with 16d common nails, #10 x 1-1/2 in. Strong-Drive SD screws or 1/2 in. diameter machine bolts
I will be using 5 of these with the 5 pressure treated posts that need replacing. The other side of the carport is attached to the house.
I plan on using either Strong-Drive SD screws or 1/2 in. diameter machine bolts. Which would you recommend?
Also do these seem rust resistance enough, I hope they will last 40 years?
