    I have some sleeve anchors used to support a lean to roof on the side of the house. How do you fully remove the anchors from the wall without damaging it.

    They are resin fixed in.. designed to not come out easy..

    You may have to replace the bricks or leave them.. if you try to force them out it will take a cone of masonry with it.

    No resin on mine. Just drill the right size hole pop her in and tighten up. This pulls on the cone shaped bit forcing outwards the split sleeve.

    Wind it out a bit then tap with the hammer to loosen it.

    excited, hi.

    As catlad has posted, generally if you unscrew the bolt, by about 20 / 25.MM then give the bolt head a Whack, what should happen is that the cone is forced out of the part of the device that expands against the brick [or whatever] it was drilled into.

    There may be a bit of bother with the ones you have in that from the photo seen the body of the expanding area of this type of bolt may? crush so dramatically that is incapable of being removed without a lot of break out of the material to which it is fitted to.

    In general if you have had a Rawl-Bolt then the above technique will allow the fixing to be withdrawn totally.

    how about you remove the bolt [if the above does not work] then leave the embedded body of the fixing in the wall and simply patch the hole, if needed using a coloured mortar?

    Ken
