Beside this, how do I attach a ledger to a brick wall?
To attach a ledger against a wall through brick veneer:
- Mark anchor locations on your ledger and drill through the board with a ½” bit.
- Position the ledger against the wall and mark the anchor positions through the hole onto the wall.
Secondly, how do you attach a ledger to concrete? Temporarily secure the ledger board to the correct location against the concrete wall using concrete screws or temporary supports. Use a wood bit to drill ½" pilot holes through the ledger board. Next, use a concrete bit to drill into the concrete wall. Install two bolts at the end of each ledger board.
Additionally, what anchor to use in brick?
Self-tapping brick anchors, concrete block or concrete screws are used for fastening items to brick. Concrete screws are most commonly called Tapcon® masonry screws. The heavy-duty masonry screw has the versatility for use in brick, mortar joints, CMU, block or solid concrete.
How do you attach wood to concrete without drilling?
Here is a very easy method for attaching that wood to concrete without using all those concrete anchors. You will need a hammer drill, 20 ounce hammer and some 16d nails. Insert a 1/4" masonry drill bit, 4 or 6 inches long, into the hammer drill. Drill through the wood and into the concrete.
