    Default Anchoring a pergola to a deck

    I want to build a pergola over an existing deck. It will actually be 2 sided, and just consist of overhead joists/rafters coming out from the house itself, and 2-3 posts for support. Can I just anchor the posts to the deck itself, and if so, what is the best method? Going through the deck and anchoring into concrete below will be extremely difficult, so I'd like to avoid that if possible. Thanks!

    If you live in a windy area, you better secure this structure well.

    There are metal connectors available from a company called Simpson, available at lumber shops and hardware stores. Look for "post to deck connector".
