Issue Drilling into Internal Damp Proofed Walls to Hang Cupboards

Postby Jackie2124 » Wed Feb 24, 2016 7:01 pm

I have just had my utility room damp proofed. I was hoping to put up kitchen units on the wall which is an external wall but have been told I can't otherwise the damp proofing will be compromised.
Anyone have any suggestion as I need to utilise the wall

you can attach some wood batten, to the wall using a grab adhesive, then screw your units to that.
