The walls in my house are made of Bungaroosh which means that attaching anything to them is most likely to hit some issues. Recently I've been trying to fit a floating shelf to the wall, but no matter what I do it ends up coming away.
The steps I've taken so far are:
- Drill hole
- Place vacuum nozzle up against hole to get all the fallen bits out
- Fill hole with filler and put wall plug in
- Wait for this to dry and then attach item with screws
This approach seems to work normally, but this shelf has turned out to be fairly heavy so it's pulling itself off the wall. I also tried some Gripfill but not sure if this is appropriate for this job - it also didn't work.
Can anyone suggest any alternate approaches I could try?
