My house, originally built in 1959, has a brick facade with (some impressively ugly) shutters on the side of our front and side windows. Eventually, we plan to give the house a face-lift and get rid of the shutters. In the meantime, one of the shutters has become detached and is dangling at an angle. I'm sure my neighbors (and, frankly, I) would be much happier for the next few years if I'd repair this problem.
Any suggestions? I don't even know how to begin to do this. I assume that because the wall is masonry the shutters (which are non-operational, by the way) weren't nailed to the facade. Is there some sort of special glue that will do the trick? Will it damage the masonry and make it impossible for me to remove the !)(@#*$ shutters in a few years? Help!
