I want to hang some pictures on the wall. The wall is made of porotherm bricks similar to this one:
I have two options:
- drill some holes with a masonry drill bit, insert some plastic dowels and a screw;
- simply hammer a nail in.
I used the second approach on AAC walls. It was faster, easier, and cleaner. I would prefer the second approach now also, but I don't know how this kind of brick behaves.
Will the brick shatter? Will I have a hard time hammering the nail? Will the nail even stay in place? Anyone have experience with hammering a nail in this kind of material?
