FRONT DOOR

 

The steps up to the front door are made of poured concrete with lots of hard stones mixed into it.

The pole that supports the roof over the doorway had come loose from its 1/2" bolt anchor, which had completely rusted away (red arrow) when my friend Rob tried to hammer a small finishing nail into the flashing..

The red arrow shows the spot (above photo) where the support column detached from the steps. I added the American flag after the repair was done and the painting finished.

After securing the pole to the cement with Quikrete Construction Adhesive

To repair this quickly and permanently, I dug a 1/2" deep by 1" square  indentation in the cement with a small chisel, then buffed it clean with a cordless drill and a steel wire buffing wheel.

I pulled what was left of the rusty bolt from the end (bottom) of the 4 x 4 support, and cleaned up the wood surface with a small wire wheel on a Dremel Tool.

I squirted copious amounts of Quikrete® Construction Adhesive #9902-10 up into the bolt hole in the wood, and between the metal flashing and the wooden support. I then used a plastic putty knife to mash a generous amount of the adhesive into the cement.

With two of us lifting up on the support, we were able to mash it down on the glob of adhesive on the concrete, then used a finger wrapped in a plastic bag to mash what oozed out of the bottom of the column into a nice bead around the support column.

After that, a generous coat of waterproof paint, and by the next morning I could not have budged that pole if I tied it to the back of my Jeep.
