It is sometimes necessary to drill a hole in the concrete slab of your storage shed. If you have an existing concrete slab that you are building a shed on you will often need to attach the bottom plates of the shed walls to the concrete slab. This is done by drilling holes and installing anchor bolts along the shed wall lines.
Drilling a hole in concrete is as easy as drilling a hole in wood. You just need to have the right drill and drill bit to drill concrete, stone or masonry. The drill used to drill concrete is called a hammer drill. A hammer drill works just like a regular drill except that it also hammers as it drills. The drill bit used to drill concrete is specially made to withstand the hardness of concrete and the hammering from the drill. The best drill bits are carbide tipped, they last many times longer than a regular steel concrete drill bit. The terms Concrete, Masonry and Stone are used interchangebly in this article.
Remember to wear safety glasses and ear protection when drilling concrete!
