How do you install floating house numbers on brick?
Use clear silicone or exterior construction adhesive to mount the numbers. Choose one number, do a quick dry-fit one more time, then fill the drill holes for that number with adhesive or silicone. Fill the holes full, but not to overflowing. Press the house number’s mounting screws into the adhesive-filled holes.
