How to Attach Furring Strip Wall To Concrete Wall?
The first thing you need to decide is whether you want your furring strip to be attached permanently or temporarily. Permanent attachment means that it will stay there forever, while temporary attachment means that it can come off at any time. If you are going to use the furring strip only occasionally then permanent attachment might not be necessary since the material won’t wear out quickly enough.
But if you plan to hang your clothes from it regularly, then permanent attachment would be better.
If you are going to use the furring strip for hanging clothing, then permanent attachment is probably best because it prevents damage to the fabric when you pull down on the furring strip. Temporary attachment wouldn’t allow you to take off your clothes without damaging them. So if you are going to use the furring strip for hanging clothes, then permanent attachment is probably best.
There are two ways to attach furring strips to concrete wall. You can either glue them or screw them into place. Glueing the furring strips onto the wall requires less effort than attaching them with screws since they don’t have to be glued into position.
However, it takes longer since you need extra time and energy for that purpose too.
First, you need to make sure that the furring strips are straight and level with each other. This is important as a crooked strip won’t look good to anyone who sees it since the pictures will be crooked too. So make sure that you don’t just tack them into position but that you measure and mark their position before nailing them into place.
Second, you need to decide whether you are going to use glue or screws.
