Seeking info re masonry property walls
MNmx posted a topic in Ajijic/Chapala/GuadalajaraGood morning. I need to build a 46m property wall. It seems that 3.5m high is somewhat standard here. Is block better than brick? Is a permit required? Are there contractors who specialize is this type of work? In advice, personal experience stories and/or recommendations appreciated.
Siding Door Security
Tiny posted a topic in Mexico GeneralAfter reading the posting about Sliding Door Lock Replacement, it reminded me of an offend overlooked security problem. "Some thieves will try to lift sliding glass doors right out of their tracks to gain entry. To keep that from happening, insert strong metal spacer plates between the doors and their top tracks. To install them, with the sliding door open, screw two plates per door into the top track where you've predrilled pilot holes.". https://www.bhg.com/home-improvement/advice/home-security/securing-special-doors/ I have also used several screws in the top plate that are not screwed all the way in, long enough so the door can be lifted off the track and short enough so the door can open and close.
