Joint compound fixes the look of the wall, but it is not hard enough to hold another hole, correct?
Underneath the compound the support is gone (concrete, wood, etc.)
If a wall already had too many repairs (compound filling holes) and I drill one more that is right by a hidden former hole, what to do? This won't be secure enough to hold items to the wall.
So the main question is: A wall that has had too many repairs, what to do since it seems unreliable to hold new fixtures?
Can this actually lead to damages in the structures, if two/three owners along the years drill too many holes?
Is there a code, standard for it? Because people simply go and put joint compound to visually hide the hole. But the hole in the underlying structure is still there.
