Windows and doors

Windows and doors

The reason why you may not be able to install bricks over windows with eaves is the window height. If you have eaves, you reduce the gap between windows and gutters.

You can use longer screws so it bites into the timber frame rather than just the mdf(?) door jamb. Also use 3x ball bearing hinges so it will never require maintenance.
