I have been debating about what kind of anchors to use to attach my ledger board to the cement block foundation of my house. I have been comparing epoxy anchors versus wedge anchors.
The epoxy anchors seem to be much more expensive when figuring in the cost of the epoxy. I was concerned about whether the wedge anchors would be strong enough. Some stuff I have read suggested the wedge anchors aren’t very strong. But reading elsewhere it sadi that once the wedge anchors are properly installed they are nearly impossible to remove.
I found a box of 25 count 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ wedge anchors made by Red Head at Home Depot. The box was about $16, or a box of 10 for about $12. I went with the box of 25. They only had one box. So I am going to have to hit another Home Depot and see if they have any more in stock.
Now I need to wait for my hammer drill to come. I will pull off some more deck planks, and then get started drilling holes.
