Installing external vinyl blinds is usually a simple,Perform tasks directly when installing on wood or siding.However,If you install plastic blinds on the brick surface,There are some things to consider.First of all,Some bricks are reinforced with metal.This makes it a very difficult task to drill through bricks.I tried it once and it took me a whole day to just install 3 pairs of blinds as I had to constantly switch back to the masonry drill bit and a steel drill bit between the 4 th.Another thing to consider is that the life of the House may be longer than that of the vinyl blinds.It's very possible for people who buy a house from you (Whenever possible on that day)Wouldn't like the blinds and would like to get them down.Alternatively, they may wish to install operable external blinds in their place.So we have to make sure that removing it in the future is a simple process.Both problems can be solved by drilling into the mortar between the bricks rather than entering the brick itself.The main reason is that it is much easier to patch the mortar than to fill and match the color and texture of the brick.The next thing to consider is whether you want to install it permanently or if you want to choose to close the window.The main reason why you want to put your vinyl blinds will be the painted house.Since bricks are usually not painted permanent installation will be sufficient in most cases.However,If part or the entire installation surface is painted, you may want to make it removable for future maintenance.Permanent blinds,You can order the vinyl external blinds with the shutter -?loks (Sometimes called fast door lock or shutter plug.Do a removable installation,You can draw metal screws to install your blinds and put them in place using some masonry anchors.Finally,You also need to consider the construction of the house.If the windowsill has a gradient windowsill, you need to leave a 1/4 gap between the windowsill and the bottom of the shutter to allow rain,snow,And the ice is lost from the window.If you have a brick mold, you will need to order the right size external blinds to stretch the window open from the top to the bottom.You will need the following items to complete the installation:1.2.Power drill,3.4.5.6.7.Shutter-8.9.Phillips screwdriver (Apply screws only)For vinyl blinds 55 inch or larger,You need to use 6 shutter-Loks or steel screws.If the shutter panel is less than 55 inch,4 installation of fasteners will be sufficient.To begin,Press and hold the position of the window next to the location of the vinyl blinds for one panel, and you want it to be installed.The shutter should be as close as possible to the open window.Now,You will need to use a pencil to mark the center of every 4 mortars (or 6)Installation location.Keep in mind that you will need to leave a gap of 2 to 5 inch between the top and bottom of the shutter above and below the mounting fastener.For example, if the first mortar line is less than 2 inch down from the top of the shutter,You should use the marking second mortar line as the point on the shutter and you will need to drill.Just mark the side of the plastic shutter at 4 (or 6)The center of the mortar line.Now,Set the vinyl shutter face on the sawhorses.Use the markings on the sides as a guide,Place the square at the top of the shutter, with one end hanging on the side and pointing down to the ground.You use this only as a guide to mark the drilling position in front of the external shutter based on the marking you place on the side indicating the position of the mortar line.The stiles (or rails)Vinyl blinds are usually 2 to 4 inch wide.Use the square as a guide,Draw a small line through the angle and then mark the exact position of the mounting hole using a tape measurement (Right in the center of the clock tower

Repeat this until all holes are marked.If you decide to use the shutter-Loks install your vinyl blinds,You need to drill a 1/4 hole in each position using a steel drill bit.For removable installation,Use the 11/64 steel drill head drill in the position where you mark the vinyl external shutter hole.Place the shutter on the surface of the House and mark the center of the hole with a pencil (This should also be in the center of the mortar.Make sure the vinyl shutter is not slippery while you mark all the positions.Delete the external shutter now.If you are using a quick door lock, you will need a 1/4 brick stone position.For applying screws, you will need to use the correct size Masonry position of the anchor you purchased.Drill in each 4 (or 6)The location you marked.For shutter-loks,Make sure the hole is at least 1 3/4 inch deep.You should drill 2 inch deep for applying screws.It's a bit better to drill a bit to make sure they're not bottom up because the start is not particularly easy and requires a new shutter-loks.To complete the shutter-OK installation,Place the shutter in the last position of the wall and press the shutter-Through the vinyl shutter and the hole into the wall.If you can't push it all the way,Tap it gently with a hammer until it just touches the surface of the vinyl shutter.Be sure to leave a little play to allow expansion and contraction.When installing with the applied screws and anchors you should drill 2 inch deep into the mortar.With a hammer,Click on the hole anchor into the mortar.Finally,Place the shutter on the surface and insert the screws through the vinyl external blinds into the masonry anchor and tighten the screws with a screwdriver.Don't tighten them too much-Vinyl blinds should not be dimples.Repeat each step for other panels of external vinyl blinds.
