Support posts for my covered porch. Damp area that gets little
sunlight but lots of snow / thaw. Posts will be bracketed above the
concrete. Cedar or pressure treated? I'm a senior and don't want to do
this again. Cedar is almost 3x the price of PT around here. And one
other question if I may - the posts are going on existing concrete. I
plan on boring a hole in center to accept the bracket for the post. Is
there a caulking type adhesive that can hold the bracket lag in or do
I go with hydraulic (sp) cement?
I'd use PT. Depending on how senior you are, plain old pine may last you.
PT can last 40+ years.
As for the bracket, drill a hole (with a masonry bit) in the concrete and
use an anchor to hold it in place.

"Bore the center" of the post.. or the concrete ?
Maybe this is what you're describing ?
