Titan post anchors for Gazebo
I'm interested in building an octogon gazebo on an existing concrete slab. The gazebo will be all cedar, with 4x4 posts, 13ft. square. The post will be about 8ft tall, and the entire structure will be around 11-12ft tall once the roof is installed. Simple railings on seven of the equal eight sides.
I'm not looking to install a floor, as I'll just be using the existing slab as the floor.
My concern is if the Titan anchor will be able to withstand the wind forces without much wobble. I'd really like for this gazebo to be around for a very long time, so lasting strength and durability are PARAMOUNT.
I've also looked at possibly the Simpson Strong-Tie EZ base that would encapsulate all four sides of the bottom of the post.
Which would you recommend?
Builders and homeowners all over are having great outcomes and success with using the post anchor for gazebos and pergolas.
Whether it is a surface mount solution to a composite or wood deck or on a concrete slab or even on stone masonry columns with cap stones.
Here is a beautiful pergola done by Macek Custom Builders. Go see a beautiful pergola job!
But the same dynamics are at play with a gazebo. In fact a gazebo has more rigidity by virtue of the walls between posts.
