I would like to cover my concrete patio. Is it possible to drill a hole in the concrete to lag a bracket to support the posts. I was thinking of drilling holes about 6" from the edge of the slab and dropping in some adhesive anchors with the brackets. What are your thoughts?
I am doing this on a job right now. All you need is a hammer-drill and a really good masonry bit. You can rent the drill from an equipment rental place, but you'll have to purchase the bit. Also, you'll want to use concrete anchors.

i have a gate across the driveway with a latch bar that locks into a hole that's drilled into the concrete driveway. My question is....should that hole be drilled all the way through the slab to allow water to drain so it doesn't freeze and expand or erode the concrete with the salt water?

No just enough to hold the gate when the wind blows.
