how to drill nail into concrete wall

2023-06-25

Looking to include a touch of decorative adornment to your abode but not sure how to go about putting a nail into a concrete wall? Have no fear; the task is far from insurmountable. By following a few simple steps you can easily incorporate the new hardware into your living quarters and add some alluring aesthetics in the process.

Finding the right nail for the task at hand is key, but you must also be aware of your drill bit size. This will depend on the size of your nail and the material it is made from. For smaller nails, you’ll need a smaller tool, whereas, if you’re getting your hands on larger fasteners, you’ll need to call for a slightly larger bit. In terms of materials, if it’s steel nails you’re working with, then it will call for a different drill bit choice than if they had been a plastic variant.

After deciding on the nail for your project, make sure to measure the size of the hole it will require. Once you have the sizing figured out, use a pencil to trace it onto the wall.

It’s time to begin drilling – grab your power drill and get ready to start, but be sure to progress slowly. As you get closer to the wall, gradually increase speed but be cautious – too much velocity may result in a busted bit.

Utilizing a hand drill? For the best start, angle the drill at 45, and as you near the wall, switch to a perfectly vertical motion.

Once you’ve successfully breached the obstruction, your next step is to insert the nail. Initially, hold the nail at a 45 degree tilt and strike it with slight taps from the hammer. Gradually, as the nail starts to penetrate further, you can drive it securely into the material with straight-on hammering.

It’s as easy as pie! Get out, grab your toolbox, and get to work installing that fresh hardware. A few simple steps are all you need for this home renovation feat. So don’t hesitate – let the drilling commence!
