While 3/4 of the country is under snow, ice, sleet, etc…, I’ve decided I’ll try to improve my website. I often get asked about mounting blocks. First of all, I’ve always thought mounting blocks make a siding job. It’s all in the details for me. When I speak of mounting blocks, I am speaking of blocks to put light fixtures, light switches, pipes, receptacles, dryer vents and about anything else that you man need on an exterior wall.
Without these blocks, I’ve seen lots of other ways to mount to the siding. None of which look as good as the blocks. Unfortunately, some folks just cut holes straight to the siding or drill directly to uneven surfaces. I see it all the time and when I see it, I cringe.
