How to install cast iron lacework?

While installing the cast iron lacework, you need to first install the corner sections. Hold the corner into the top section of the post and fix it. You can fix the above beam with fasteners with the help of lugs on the corner. The decorative dropper should be fixed between the two posts. Once it is done you can install the lacework by fitting one section of frieze to the edge of the corner. Repeat this process on the opposite side as well.

How to attach federation verandah brackets?

We would recommend installing brackets with round-head brass screws. It will allow more adjustment as well as it avoids damage from hammer blows. You need to hold the bracket in place, mark the location and pre-drill the screw holes. Use large screw heads to attach the bracket in place.
