The wife has asked me to put up some string lights (2 x 45' lengths weighing 9 lbs/strand) over our deck in the backyard and I'm looking for the best way to hook it up to the house as I don't have any wood on the house to screw into.
I have bought a 1/8" - 3/16" vinyl coated cable with a cable kit that includes the turnbuckles and clamps, however, I need to still purchase the eye hooks to install on the house. I guess those will depend on where I should install them.
Should I screw the eye hook into:
- The bottom of the fascia?
- The bottom of the soffits? or
- Into the mortar between the bricks?
Which would be the best option? I've looked through countless articles/videos online, however, they mostly always just skip over this part and don't explain the options.
If you have any links to the best eye hooks for whichever application as well, that would be a great bonus too.
