Thanks - I thought about this method but was not sure about 2 things

You don't have to drill anything. The support sits on the block just like a 4x4 would. I've never seen or heard about one these breaking. Its just as strong. You're building a deck not a skyscraper.strongline wrote: ↑ Thanks - I thought about this method but was not sure about 2 things
1. whether the block has matching hole to install the support. I like to avoid drill holes myself. Can you confirm that the block above has matching hole?
2. Compare to a solid block, due to the hollow top, will the footing still strong enough? As far as I can see, it is going to have a lot less lateral strength

If you are in the east end, try Peacock Lumber in Oshawa.strongline wrote: ↑ Thanks all for reply. Sounds like I am over concern the rotting issue of posts, just need to have a bit of comfort knowing it can last for reasonable time.
Any suggestion for a good lumber yard in GTA? Is Homedepot stuff good enough? One of the youtube video said they deformed too much

Wouldn’t lateral sheer be a huge issue? Like a wobbly table.RaphaelG041 wrote: ↑ You don't have to drill anything. The support sits on the block just like a 4x4 would. I've never seen or heard about one these breaking. Its just as strong. You're building a deck not a skyscraper.
Its a better option than what you were looking for because its adjustable. The blocks will move with the frost/thaw cycle so its very useful
