Why Drilling into Concrete Pillars is Dangerous and Against Condo Association Policies

 

You’ve found the perfect condo. It’s in the ideal location and has a great floorplan. As you settle into your new space, you quickly realize that some of the room features you loved most about your new space pose some decorating and furniture arrangement issues. You love the clean, modern look of a wall mounted TVs, but your new space poses some mounting challenges thanks to concrete pillars and walls that your condo association prohibits you from drilling into.

This scenario may sound all too familiar. Condo residents across the world face some of the same challenges each day. Condo associations have strict policies when it comes to drilling into concrete walls and pillars, and they are in place for good reason.

Drilling into concrete pillars, especially load-bearing pillars, can cause concerns for the structural safety of your condo unit and the building as a whole. Drilling can weaken the concrete and cause additional cracks to form, compromising your safety. Additionally, some concrete structures in a room may contain electrical conduits or water pipes, causing additional concern for your safety and the safety of other building residents and could potentially cause an incredible amount of damage to the property. When structural integrity is compromised, you also run the risk of losing your home warranty. 

And, if you choose to violate condo association policies and drilling into the walls or concrete structures, you will be left with an unsightly batch of holes to attempt to patch and hide from your association when you move and potentially face large fines for violating policies if the damage is discovered. Such damage may also turn off future buyers.

So, what options do you have when bulky TV consoles aren’t feasible, and what options exist for TV mounting on a circular column?
