Fixing a Wooden Post to a Brick Wall - Can I use Brackets?

Postby Pheme » Tue Nov 04, 2014 1:32 pm

This may be a stupid question but I need to know why.

I need to connect a wooden post to the brickwork of my house and I wondered if I could fix a bracket(s) to the wall and then fix the post to the bracket. The existing post has come away from the wall and it looks as if it was fixed with very long nails directly into the wall (probably been that way since the house was built). I have read other poeple connect the post directly to the wall using thunderbolts (haven't yet looked these up). I just thought it would be easier - but maybe not?
