Filling a hole so that it is drillable again

Postby Leannew » Sat Jul 09, 2022 12:12 pm

I took down a blind pole and removed the fixings from the wall. I don't want to fill the holes with just polyfiller as I want them to be drillable again, in case either I or anyone else wants to drill in to them in the future, and put a pole there. Obviously it's an external wall. What do I use?

Hi leannew,
Try using one of the premixed fillers which set harder than the powder ones.
