If the posts are concreted into the ground, and the posts are bolted to the beams with two bolts at each meeting, then no further bracing should be required. If, however, the posts are not in-ground, but supported by Covered with a protective coating of zinc. see PILE brackets, then additional bracing is required. One such scenario is to To secure with nails or screws. upper post diagonal bracing (see diagram), two to each post, each about 900mm (3ft) long (more or less), and fixed to the post with A short nail with a large flat head used for securing roofing felt, plasterboard, sheet metal to wood etc. plates and fixed to the A supporting member./rafter with bolts.
Another scenario is to fix full 100mm x 100mm (4″ x 4″) diagonal braces running from the bottoms of the middle posts to the tops of the end posts and secure with bolts, nail plates or Galvanized brackets at each end. A similar diagonal To make rigid. is also required between the two rear (end) posts. With this latter scenario, the diagonal braces could be replaced with diagonal trellis (Framework consisting of an ornamental design made of strips of wood or metal. A framework of crossed wood or metal strips.) between the two end posts and the end post and middle post each side (three panels in all).
Both bracing methods mentioned in this scenario also require roof A flat surface extending infinitely in all directions (e.g. horizontal or vertical plane). Any flat, two-dimensional surface. bracing to ensure the front of the A roof that covers a driveway or other parking area, it does not have a door in the manner of a garage. A garage for one or two cars consisting of a flat roof supported on poles. is rigid. This can be 25 Abbreviation for millimeter which is a metric unit of length equal to one thousandth of a meter. 25.4 mm equals one inch. (1″) wide flat Galvanized metal strapping stretched from corner to corner and fixed with Galvanized nails to the tops of each Structural member of a roof that supports the roof load and runs from the ridge to the top of the side walls..
You can now apply your chosen roof.
Different types of roof will have different fixing instructions from the manufacturers.
All done. Eazy with a “Z”!
