Hanging Christmas Lights on Brick Homes
You can hang Christmas lights and decorations on brick homes just like your neighbors with wood or non-brick facades. The key to attaching the lights properly is to use the correct light clips and hangers. Brick can make hanging lights difficult, but here are a few tricks:
First and foremost, be sure to use brick clips
o Brick clips are designed to specifically clamp onto bricks of varying sizes
o Brick clips will not
damage the mortar
o These clips can hold wreaths or lights equally well
o Make use of standard clips on other hanging surfaces of the house.
o Determine which type of light clip
you need for your application
o Use standard and all-in-one clips on shingles, gutters and roofline
o Control the spacing of your lights – a light clip for every bulb or icicle drop is recommended by the professionals
