    Need some advise on how to mount something to brick. I have a street number plaque that I want to mount to the front of my house. It is a wood plaque and mounting to a brick house. But I don't know what I need or any precautions that need to be taken. Any advise is appreciated.

    Thanks I was thinking it was much more involved. One of those time when I try to overthink things.

    Try these anchors, they look good when installed, and are semi permanent, you CAN get them out if you really try. They dont rust and give a nice 'rivit' look on bricks.

    Personally I would drill the motar and not the brick itself. It would be much easier to repair if you ever remove the plaque.

    Liquid nails or a similar construction adhesive will work well. If you are worried about what it would look like when you take it down, just plan to replace it with another similar sized or larger plaque.

    Personally I would not use a rowel(spelling) due to the fact that it could possibly cause a brick to split/crack. Also they are very hard to get out especially in this situation were you could easily damage the bricks during removal.

    How 'bout these then?


    I've never had a problem with the drive pins in any masonry, though.
