After looking for ways to help improve privacy between me and my nextdoor neighbors I thought about buying 8ft long panels of corrugated steel and fastening them to our six foot cinder block wall. I plan on just setting them at the ground level and having the corrugated lines run up and down vertically. I'm going for a very modern austere look so this would not only function well for privacy needs but also work with my design style.
It's against city code for me to build anything on top of the fence but there's nothing that states I can't attach anything to the fence on my side. I wanted to know what is the best type of anchor screw for this type of application and if anyone has done this before and how successful they were.
I live in the desert with an average rainfall of only four inches yearly so I don't think I'd have to worry about water and moisture causing damage to the cinder block with a piece of metal in permanent contact with it over the long haul.
Lastly, would an anchor bolt with nut and washer added at the top provide me with more support?:
What I'm thinking of doing is drilling a hole in the corrugated panels so that the hole allows me to thread this anchor through it. The hole would be in alignment with the very top of the cinder block wall. I'd have the hook end on the opposite side grabbing onto the wall and on my side I'd tighten the bolt. I would want to add something like this for added strength since we get some high winds in the area from time to time. I think an extra two feet isn't much to worry about but I'm by no means an expert. Hence why I'm here asking for input.
Any suggestions for anchoring these panels to help me create my project would be appreciated.
