Bricks or Mortar?
andermany

I am about to mount a floating shelf, mantle, on a brick fireplace. I have been told in the past that you should never drill and put anchors in the mortar. I was told it is better to drill into the brick but to be sure not to put more than one hole in a brick. Is this true or should I put the anchors into the Mortar?

I've always put anchors in the mortar. Way easier than trying to drill brick.
