Install TV Wall Mount On To Basement Wall
April 18, 2012 at 06:56 PM
I want to place a tv wall mount onto my basement wall, the wall is covered with paneling. My plan was to remove a section of the paneling (a section no bigger than the wall mount itself) & then install the mount. Then paneling is attach to small wood studs which are themselves attached to the concrete wall. The mount comes with lag screws as well as concrete anchors. I have yet to remove the particular section of paneling were the mount will be installed, I have in the past took a look behind the paneling because I was contemplating replacing it all with drywall, but I am not completely certain in the studs are spaced 16 inches apart (I know it will be easy for to check right now). My question is, if the studs are 16in apart, would there be an issue installing the lag screws through the studs & concrete? Or should I try to install the the mount to just the concrete itself using the anchors? if the studs are in the way of me install the mount to the concrete wall do I remove the studs? I have install to tv mounts in the past, but the mounts were screwed into wood studs (and I guess drywall). Recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
