Clark Harris of Roswell-based Innovative Construction recommends these tools when decorating outdoors:
- Use Tapcon screws and a masonry drill bit to hang wreaths, garland or other items on a brick surface. Drill into the mortar joint, instead of the brick, in order to avoid cracking the brick.
- Select a basic nail if using adhesive, but it’s best to leave it up throughout the year.
- Use a screw with siding, since a nail can damage siding.
- Wedge a piece of wood into a void between stacked stones and install a screw or nail.
