Ryobi 800W 13mm Corded Hammer Drill
Use the Hammer Drill to drill a hole into the brick. Insert ‘spaghetti' or a wall plug into each hole. This gives the screws something to bite into. Pre drill a hole in each end of the timber. Insert the screw through the timber and into the hole in the brick and screw it in place. Repeat to fix each end of the top and bottom frame timber to the wall.
Mark where each end of your pegboard will sit and position the timber struts. Use your spirit level to make sure everything is lined up. Then drill through timber into the brick using your Hammer Drill. Make sure you drill into the centre of the brick and not the mortar. Tap a piece of spaghetti through the hole. Then drill the rest of the holes for the struts and screw them to the wall.
Mount your pegboard on the timber using 30mm chipboard screws. Make sure your frame is flush with the edges of the pegboard. Add in more screws at the bottom. If you have a particularly long pegboard it's a good idea to add some screws in the middle as well.
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
