Do I need to use mending plates?

Thanks for the feedback ... I'm learning something for every post. Question about my beams.. I'm attaching (sistering?) two 2x10s. The book says screws about 24" apart. From comments here, I gather that I should use construction adhesive and nails. I read that I should use 3 nails every 16". Comments?

Ledgers: ok to bolt ledges directly to concrete? Should I fill the gap between the concrete and the ledger? Silicone chalk?

Securing posts to piers:

I plan to use concrete expansion bolts and angle brackets with a single 1/2" bolt. Comments?


Attachment 3667

The beams will be secured to the posts with two 1/2 bolts in each beam.

Is this an acceptable alternative? Or another 4x6 sistered with 1/2" through bolts, since I already have additional 4x6s.

BridgeMan,

I think i understand your "Rim Scab", i see how it adds strength. Does this look like what you're saying? Pardon my pencil sketch; it's not to scale.

Yes, the 2x10 beams are PT. it's been suggest in this thread that I use Anchorseal for all cut ends. I plan to treat the posts over all surfaces with Anchorseal. I believe that will do the same as what you suggest. Do you agree?

Suggestions for "sealing" double 2x10 beam?


Attachment 3729

Should I seal the joint along the top between the 2x10? If so, with Construction Adhesive?

Thanks in advance,
Roger
