    I used to do glass pool fences at my last job, you can hire a core drill and bit from most hire places and do it your self,
    Very easy to do, save yourself some $$$

                Quick question as some of you guys seem to have some knowledge on the situation. I am wanting to put shade sails up outside my house, if I bore into the limestone blocks on my retaining wall will they support the force of the shade sails? The limestone blocks are the typical ones supplied as part of the housing development in most new areas.

                I thought about using come chem-set with long anchored bolts but not sure whether this will hold, don't want to damage the retaining wall...

                Any help would be appreciated boys.

                  Depends on a lot of things such as the size of the shade sail, height of the poles, size of limestone blocks.

                  If you are putting it into the block that is on the edge of the wall, definitely not - the block piece will pull out sideways from the block under the leverage. You would be much better off to dig a hole and concrete it in or do whatever the manufacturer says.

                    Thanks, yeah they are 5x5m sails, I don't see it moving the block I'm just worried about the limestone breaking apart under tension as I gather they are just reconstituted and not very strong.
