best way to nails furring strips into concrete blocks


For those looking to spruce up a basement, using furring strips is a great way to enhance the look of drywall. On concrete block walls, these strips allow for a smooth finish that one can easily attach the drywall panels to. Sturdy nails will provide support to the furring strip and ensure it stays securely in place.

Steel nails meant for use with brick and stone (masonry nails) are a straightforward, available solution for fastening two surfaces together. These sharp-ended implements can be found at most hardware stores and easily inserted into the concrete block at a forty-five-degree angle using a hammer.

For anyone looking for a reinforce connection between concrete and furring strip, then concrete screws are the perfect solution. Obtainable from any normal hardware store, these steel-constructed screws have enablement on their end for easier drilling. With a simple drill, these screws should be driven into the concrete blocks at a 45 degree angle for a secure hold.

An adhesive can provide a reliable third approach to affixing furring strips to concrete. Most hardware stores will have a selection of adhesive formulations, so be sure to read the label and find one that is appropriate for you needs. Utilizing a putty knife, apply the adhesive to the furring strip at an angle of 45 degrees for best results.

After the furring strip is affixed to the cinder block, it can serve as an ideal anchor for drywall. You have the option to attach drywall to the furring strip with either screws or nails; however, make certain that you match up the right kind of screw or nail to the material you are working with.

It all boils down to the tools at your disposal and the type of furring strip you’re utilizing. With that in mind, you can consider using masonry nails, concrete screws, or adhesive to fasten furring strips into concrete blocks. Peruse product labels carefully for any insight that would pinpoint the best option for your objectives.
