    Attaching rain gutters to cinder block walls

    Hi there!

    I have rain gutters mounted in my classroom for my class library. Some are mounted directly on the cinder block walls. My husband drilled holes, inserted sinkers, and then screwed the gutters directly to the wall. They have been up and used daily since August, and there is no sign of them pulling away.

    In addition to mounting them on the cinder block walls, we also purchased a piece of plywood (4' x 8')with white laminate on it. We turned it sideways and mounted gutters directly to it. Then, we positioned it on one of my chalkboard ledges and drilled the top of it into the cinder block located just above the chalkboard. (I know some classrooms have limited chalkboards, but in my room they are on every single wall!)

    Hope this information is helpful! I truly love using them and I have over 400 books displayed on them!

    My best,
