I am a rookie at this and put my wedge anchors in too close to an unsupported concrete edge. The base wall of an aluminum structure is attached. (I basically need an extra 2.5 inches.) I do not want to take down the whole structure and move it. What is the best way to change the unsupported edge to a supported edge. Can I add a concrete support along side the footing that would work?

What you want to do is irrelevant...

You will do whatever it takes to correct your screwup.

Contact an engineer...

Curious why the anchors are 7” long. If you are anchoring aluminum, that suggests a thin material. Call it an inch, but that’s awfully thick. Anyway ... that means the anchor went into the concrete 6” ... very thick concrete.
