Hello. Could someone put me right. My next door neighbour's garage door post has rotted (see attachment) about a foot or so up from the ground. I will try to replace that part. I have seen videos on how to cut out that part of the post. However, as the wooden post is attached to the brickwork my question is what are the best screws/bolts and drill bit (presumably masonry) to use to secure a new replacement piece of wooden post to the brickwork masonry? I think they have to be masonry screws to fit into the brickwork. Possibly coach bolts but i am not sure. The actual post measures 1.5 inches (38mm) on the outside fascia x 2.75 inches(69.85mm) on the inside of the post. Thank you for your help.
Hello. If i used wood screws i would have to drill a couple of holes in the brickwork and insert rawl plugs in order to secure the wood to the masonry unless i used masonry screws. Also, i would countersink the wood holes to get a flush finish with the screw heads. Thank you for the reply.
