Unnailing Concrete: A Guide

Even with its sizable head and hard composition, concrete nails are not entirely impervious when it comes to taking them off. There are a handful of techniques you can use to pull the stubborn fasteners out – and your efforts will surely pay off in the long run.

To free a stubborn nail, reach for a pair of pliers. Gently grasping the head of the fastener with the pliers, give it a twist. This should loosen it sufficiently for grasping and pulling out. If the head of the nail is too small for the pliers to grab, try tapping it with a hammer. This should loosen the nail sufficiently to make removal much simpler.

A chisel is a useful tool to make removing nails easier. Simply place the chisel on the head of the nail and give it a whack with the hammer to loosen it up. Doing this will make popping out those problem nails a breeze.

If stubborn nails are proving difficult, try applying a bit of heat to make them easier to remove. A blow torch or heat gun can be used to achieve this – simply position it against the nail head and wait for a few minutes until its warmth softens and loosens the nail.

Once the nail has been carefully taken out, it’s time to conclude the preparatory process by enlarging the hole. A handy drill can be employed to simply and effectively turn the task into reality – all you need to do is insert the bit into the hole and crank it; this will stretch out the gap, making it easier to restore.

Struggling to get that concrete nail out? Give a few of these solutions a try, however, if the nail is still immovable, it may be time to reach out to a professional for assistance.
