HOW TO DRILL INTO CONCRETE
Updated: Jul 19
1. Safety should always be your first priority - wear a dust mask, protective eyewear, and use a stud metal and live cable detector before you start drilling.
2. Don’t drill too close to concrete edges - if you do, you risk unwanted chunks breaking off.
3. Mark your drill spot using a pencil, consider the hole depth required - a trick is to tape your drill bit to keep track of depth while drilling.
4. Not all drill bits are the same. When drilling into concrete, use a masonry drill bit and make certain you're using the right size bit for the circumference needed.
5. You can use a standard drill, but a hammer drill will make the task easier.
6. When drilling your hole, avoid drilling at high speed to start - low speed gives you better control to avoid unwanted surface damage.
7. Once you finish drilling, vacuum out unwanted dust.
8. To hold your screw firmly in place, drive a plastic plug n first. If hanging heavy items, you should use an anchor screw.
