drilling into brickwork

Postby diy wife » Sun Sep 04, 2011 8:37 pm

Am having problems drilling into brickwork. Drill won't go any further than approx 2cm before it reaches a block. What is likely to be causing the block? How should I attach the shelves to this wall with confidence that they will be able to carry weight?
