I am new to this BB and had a question. I just finished building an approx. 470 sq. ft. covered Deck. This was built with No. 2 Pressure treated southern pine. I used screws from top to bottom. The felt and the shilgles on the roof where the only nails used. The roof is supported by a total of 8 4"x4"s and on the center I used a 4"x6" for heavy support and stability. These have a 24" deep concrete base with a bell shape, 18" at the top of the base and 20-24" bottom concrete base. I copnsider this to be pretty solid. Now that I am finished I estimate to weight of the roof to be close to 2300 lbs. With this said I now notice that when I check the roof to see if it moves/sway when I try to pull on a post it does move ever so slightly, very slowly and for approx 3-4 seconds it continues to move.
The questions are...
Is this normal...?
Is the slight moving/swaying, and the fact that it has 2300 lbs of weight something that I should be concerned with...?
Please advise and thank you...!
