Likewise, is it OK to drill into vinyl siding?
No matter which screw you buy, make sure it is a Phillips head screw because they are the easiest to use. Obviously, you want to be safe when climbing ladders to drill into the siding. Vinyl siding is easy to penetrate, but there are places you want to avoid within the profile of the siding.
Beside above, how do you mount a flag pole to a house?
- Positioning. Begin by positioning the bracket where you would like to hang your flag, then mark where the holes are with a pencil.
- Pre-Drill. With a drill bit appropriate for your home's sheathing (brick, wood, etc.), drill holes deep enough for 1 ¼ inch screws.
- Caulk the Holes.
- Attach Bracket.
- Slide Flagpole Into Place.
Herein, how do you hang something on vinyl siding?
Hang a vinyl siding hook on your house. This is the most efficient method. Slip the top of the hook underneath a piece of siding and wiggle it until it "snaps" into place. This hooks it onto the bottom of the siding.
Where should a flag be placed on a house?
Ideally, an American flag on your house should hang from a staff that angles out from the front wall or a windowsill or balcony. It's a good idea to screw a bracket made for holding the flagstaff to the trim.
