how to hammer masonry nails into concrete


In order to give your home an aesthetic enhancement, look no further than masonry nails. The wide head and sharp point of these steel and brass nails make them ideal for beautifying concrete surfaces with decor. To get started, here is a handy tutorial on how to securely hammer masonry nails into concrete.

Having the proper tools at your disposal is essential before you embark on any project. Specifically, a hammer, masonry bit, drill, safety goggles and gloves should all be within arm’s reach prior to starting. Not only will these items make the task at hand easier, but they will also act as a protective barrier between you and any potential harm that can come from the job.

To begin your project, you need to make a hole in the concrete for the masonry nail to fit into. The size of the pilot hole should match the nail, so a 3/8″ nail will require a 3/8″ hole. Ensure that all of your tools are ready beforehand.

Once the drill has done the job the masonry nail needs to be placed into the hole and with a few taps of a hammer, softly pushed down so that its surface is aligned with that of the concrete.

Finally, employ the masonry bit to produce a countersink perimeter that encases the nail head. This will guard against it eventually being ejected from its position.

You can finish your project with a simply effective touch: adding masonry nails to any concrete surfaces. Although you’ll want to take extra care while working, it is entirely achievable, as long as you take the necessary safety precautions and keep a steady and methodical attitude throughout.
