Anchors & Brick Veneer

5828 Views 9 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  rjordan392
My home has brick veneer. This veneer also has hollow areas in it. When installing lead anchors, is it best to drill through the mortor joint so that the anchor will expand between two bricks? The first couple of times that I drilled through the brick, the hole was too close to the hollow area, that when I inserted a screw, the hole collapsed into the hollow space and the anchor was useless.

what kind of lead anchors are you talking about? Just want to be sure before I tell you how to break your bricks with an expanding anchor.

what are you attaching as well?

and when you say veneer, do you mean a full size (depth) brick?. with space behind it?
