Hello all,

I'm looking for advice regarding attaching a 6'x3' 18mm piece of softwood ply to the inside wall of my garage. The idea is that I can easily knock nails and so on into the board and use it as a sort of peg board for hand tool storage. I've actually already attached the board by drilling a pilot hole through the board and marking the wall, then removing the board and drilling larger holes and adding rawl plugs, pretty standard. The bricks in my garage seem to crack whenever I try to drill them so I made sure to put all the holes through into the mortar instead.

The board is now up and seems plenty strong. My question is do I need to worry about the board expanding/contracting with seasonal changes and potentially breaking up or weakening the mortar?

Any advice is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Wouldn't have thought so, four decent fixings in each corner would about do it.
