Can i Secure a bracket to my conservatory facia board?

+7
Answered
I am planning to make some roman blinds for my conservatory, fastening them on with a bespoke bracket system, with 2x1 wood sitting on top of the bracket to fasten velcro on, to hang the blinds from, the bracket will be secured at the bottom on the main window frames but for extra strength I would like to secure them to my facia board also. Can anyone tell me if there is anything behind the facia board to screw into or will I be just screwing into the facia with nothing behind, I have googled diy conservatory building videos and found nothing showing the what is behind. ( i really dont want to remove my facia boards to find out what is behind i was hoping you lovely people out there can help me....Thank you.

      Thankyou John, I am aware of this fact as I have had vertical blinds fitted and I was informed at the time

    im not quite sure, but in the south here is US., its called a sunroom. regardless, facia board is nailed or screded into place. Having said that, yes, you can secure a bracket to it. Not knowing your building codes, try to find the rafters and try to mount them to the rafters.

      Thankyou Hope Williams, mine is made from upvc and steel, it sounds like yours and mine are very differen. But thankyou for your info.

    I have used industrial strength Velcro (2" wide) to hang roman shades on metal french doors because I didn't want holes in doors. I opened and closed them daily and shades never came off from pulling up. I stuck one side of Velcro to the door (in your case the facia), matching side of Velcro to a board (cut to size). Then attached another piece of Velcro to the other side of the board and the matching side of that Velcro to the roman shade. Very important to use industrial strength. You can find at most fabric stores and some hardware stores

    Is it vinyl, aluminum, wood? If it isn't wood, I would call the or a conservatory company to see if they have any suggestions, and to find out if installing brackets will damage the fascia or void the warranty.
