We were surprised to discover that the strong winds in the area had caused the shutters of the house to be unhooked or snapped in half from the brick siding. Upon further inspection, we found that most of the properties in the vicinity had similar issues; their shutters were held in place by spikes that had been cut and the holes were not properly aligned, making them vulnerable to being broken or dislodged in strong winds.
The project began with the removal of all the shutters located in the front of the house. To ensure a better grip, we drilled new holes into the mortar instead of the brick and made them deeper to avoid the need for cutting new spikes. This ensured that the new shutters would be securely fastened and do their job correctly.
After clearly explaining the cause of the problem and the final solution to the client, she visibly relaxed and expressed her gratitude. Soon after, other neighbors in the area contacted us to resolve similar issues.
