I am trying to find a way to connect my gate to my brick house without the weight of it pulling the 4x4 out of the house
A few years ago, I built me a wooden gate (see pictures), and on one side, the gate was connected to a 4x4 that was connected to the side of my brick house. I used cement screws to drive in the mortar/cement between the bricks, but over time, the weight of the gate has pulled the screws out of the cement between the bricks. I have bought me a white German Shepherd pup, and now I need to get my gate back up so she won't get out of my back yard, but I've not found a good way to keep the screws in the cement. I know there are anchors to drive in, but I'm not sure what is the right type to get. I'm sure there is a correct way to mount a 4x4 to the side of a brick house. Any ideas would greatly be appreciated.
