I have poured cement walls in my basement. My plans were to use tapcons to attach furing strips to the wall for dry wall attachment. Here is my problem it is very hard to drill into the wall I tried to drill a small hole to make the tapcon go in easier but it really doenst help. Any suggestions I would rather not build a wall with 2x4 studs I am really just covering the ugly cement wall. The reason for the furing strips is with the poured wall every 2 feet there is a cement seam that comes out a small amount but if I put carpet there it would cause a wave effect so no quick fix with carpet my first idea.
