Ten Tools Everyone Needs To Own For Home Improvement

When it comes to improving your home, you must need to make sure that you have all the tools you need. Through the right tools, you will enjoy your work while building, repairing or maintaining your house and it also looks well. Plus, you should ensure that you are not wasting your money getting multiple tools that you don't' need. So here's a quick list to show you what you need to own for home improvement activities.

Ten Tools Everyone Needs To Own For Home Improvement

Here are the ten things people should invest for their homes in case of anything need to repair or install:

1. Hammer and Nails

This is a crucial must-have tool at home. Almost all homeowners own a hammer. I recommend you to get a solid-steel framing hammer that has a ripping claw, making it easier to hammer in nails or for demolition. It's strong, indestructible and can be used for many projects. Take a hammer loop to hang and store the tool easily right after usage.

2. Tool Pouch

You might be wonder that why this has such a huge necessity, but you'll be surprised how handy and fastener pouch the tool is while you do your works. You must need a place to put your tools while working and your pockets will not suffice. Instead of leaving it on the floor (which is unsafe) or the work desk to you should go for a tool pouch. So that you can hang your tools in your shoulder or waist while working. You can also keep your tools safe in it after using.

3. Protection Gear

Safety gear is also must-have because you never know what will happen while you're doing your projects. I recommend you to get hearing protection, safety goggles, as well as a mask to protect lungs. After all, you won't want to injure yourself when you can easily protect with the proper gears. Coveralls may also help you if you're going to get down and dirty. Better to ruin these coveralls than to get your working clothes dirty!

4. Brooms

After or during your project, you will have a mess to clean up. Do not leave the workplace dirty, because it won't only accumulate dust, but it's also a safety hazard. Don't slip on dust or spills you made while working and clean as you go. Having a broom and a few cloths to wipe spills will definitely help you work more efficiently.

5. Ladders

If there's one thing I learned, it's NEVER to stand on boxes or tables while working in high places. You need a ladder for that. It's not only safe, but also you'll be able to work  in higher areas like the roof. You can stay stable and can stand with confidence during working.

6. Saw Blades

There are a ton of saw blades to choose from that will allow you to cut through various materials like wood, plastic, steel, or even steel pipes! Get a complete set so you won't have to worry about not being able to cut through your materials for home projects.

7. Pliers

Pliers help with just about anything from crosscutting electrical cables, trimming cables sheath and papers or even cutting rusty nails and clips. They are used in almost all maintenance and repair projects for house.

8. Drill

Besides a drill, I recommend you to get drill bits for just about any situation. Get a spade bit to bore holes on pipes and cables or a ship auger to create multiple holes quickly. Twist bits can make pillow holes for your large screws, while step drills help to make holes in steel and metal.

9. Wrenches and Screwdrivers

Wrenches and screwdrivers are necessary for installing nails, removing or adding bolts, and basically provide the grip you need to turn or prevent bolts from turning. I recommend you to get a complete set so you can work on many nail and bolt sizes without hassle.

10. Tape and Markers

You will need various tapes to have it stick through your cables or to patch things up quickly. Markers are also necessary to ensure that you know where to drill holes, take measurements and where to cut lumber or metal.

In Conclusion

And there you have it! Through investing in these handy and functional tools, you won't have to worry about installing the best faucet water filter or repairing your kitchen floors any longer. You save money doing it yourself and without the hassle of having tools you don't need lying around.

I hope that this list of tools you need will help you a lot for your household works. So don't wait any longer and make the right investments today!
