Some anchors in the walls of a cement block house which are used for
securing hurricane shutters have become loose and need to be
replaced. First question is, what's the best way to get them out of
the wall with limited damage to surrounding areas and second, what
would be best product to use to patch the holes before drilling and
reinstalling new anchors?
In one area at an outside corner, the anchor has become so loose that
it's about to just fall out and there's about a quarter inch crack
leading into the hole. If I were to just pull this anchor and
eliminate that spot altogether as an anchor point, would it be
feasible to try force some hydraulic cement or maybe some epoxy into
the hole so that it would fill voids behind and around the area
without chipping or cutting a section away to reform the corner?
Thanks for any tips and input.
