I'm looking for tips and suggestions on installing an outdoor outlet on my deck. The condo was built in 1964 and it is brick.
I've purchased the GFCI receptacle, the outdoor plastic cover box and an outlet box that is bronze metal.
It is attaching the bronze metal outlet box to the wall where I have questions. I'm curious about the pros/cons of going through the brick or mortar. I've read a few posts online and it seems that there are suggestions for both.
what type of anchors and screws should I use for the outlet box?

I really appreciate any info.

Thanks!
