I just purchased a condo on the beach, which was built in 1978. Trying to drill through the concrete but to no avail.
For the past 3 days I’ve been running to the big box stores to purchase drill bits for metal & concrete to use with my regular corded drill, but to no avail. So, I’ve done some research. Purchased a corded SDS Bauer Rotary Hammer Drill and a different drill bit just for my SDS drill to use on concrete. Well, once again I can’t penetrate but maybe 1/8”. Very frustrating! What are in my walls? I live in a condo on the beach, 5th floor. We do get hurricanes, just thought I’d mention that in case it mattered in the building materials that were used. It’s my closet that I’m trying to put shelves in, which share the same wall as the living room. I believe it is a load bearing wall. If there’s anyone that could give me some insight, I’d really appreciate it!
