Similarly, it is asked, how long does it take to drill through concrete?
Considering you can bore a two-inch hole in under a minute using a hammer drill, pausing every 15 to 20 seconds should suffice. Once you have drilled your hole to the necessary depth, blow all of the concrete dust out of the hole with a can of compressed air then vacuum up whatever has fallen to the ground.
Secondly, is it OK to drill into foundation? It's safe to drill into the slab and foundation, as long as it's not big holes. And you don't want two access holes/ slots coming in at a 90 degree angle to each other. The possible problems later on could be moisture ingress, and bug ingress.
Also question is, can I drill a hole in concrete with a regular drill?
