Tool Kit Essentials: 10 Tools You Should Have

Occasionally, every homeowner is required to do small fix-it job around their home.  Not every homeowner is a full-fledged “handyman,” but it’s still important to have a small tool kit that is clean, organized, and in a good state of repair.  Here are the top 10 tools that every homeowner’s tool kit ought to contain:

1. Hammer
A hammer is required to drive brads or nails.  Hammers come in various sizes, generally sized by ounces of the head.  A 12 ounce hammer is fairly light and will drive a brad for hanging a picture, but if you have nail that needs to be driven into a piece of wood, a 16 ounce hammer is much more useful.

2. Flat Head Screwdriver
You’ll need one with a mid-range slot about 1/4 inch across the head.  The end of the screwdriver should be good and square for safety reasons.  If you can afford it, purchase a small set of 3 or 4 different size screwdrivers.

3. Philips Head Screwdriver
For the average homeowner, a #2 point screwdriver will be most useful because it will fit the majority of screws.  If using an older screwdriver, be sure to inspect the condition of the tip.  It should have good, crisp points.

4. Adjustable Wrench
An adjustable wrench (often incorrectly referred to as a crescent wrench) is a critical part of any tool kit.  It fits square and hex nuts ranging from 1/4 inch usually up to 1 inch.  If you wish, you can also purchase an adjustable wrench that will fit nuts larger than 1 inch across.

5. Slip Joint Pliers
The hole in one side of a pair of slip joint pliers will look like a figure 8.  This is so the pliers can accommodate two different sizes of grips, small and large.  Remember that if you use a pair of pliers to hold or turn a tap, it’s important to first get a very good grip.  If the pliers slip, the head of the tap or nut will be damaged and a wrench will never fit it again.

6. Alligator Pliers
This tool is often found in a plumber’s tool kit, but can be useful for the average homeowner, as well.  Alligator pliers allow you to grasp larger items, usually ranging from 1/4 inch up to perhaps 1-1/2 inches square.

7. Scissors
Every homeowner’s tool kit should have one set of good quality scissors.

8. Side Cutters
Side cutters look like a pair of pliers with cutter jaws.  They will cut through rope or metal wire much easier than scissors will.

9. Tape Assortment
An assortment of different tapes will also come in handy.  Some good types to include are duct tape, masking tape, and clear packing tape.

10. Hardware Kit
A small hardware kit is a critical part of your tool kit, and can be easily purchased at most hardware stores.  A hardware kit will contain an assortment of items: brads for hanging pictures and taps, nuts and bolts, wood screws, and even some sheet metal screws for repairing many household items.

Home Inspection – A First Time Home Buyer’s Best Tool

A home inspection may be one of the best tools available to first time buyers. It provides you with more than just the okay to purchase the house. In fact, all owners of the property should be present for this walk through. It will not only provide you with information about the condition of the property, but also give you valuable advice about owning and maintaining it. Chances are good you do not know the previous owner, nor what the property has gone through during its lifetime. This type of walk through gives you that information.

Hire the Right Company First Counts

The first step in the process is to hire a qualified, professional company to handle the home inspection. This way, you have a responsible party to trust that has the information and resources you need to make a wise decision about the property. Family and friends, while informative, cannot give you that non-prejudice advice. Rather, hire a company to work for you through this process. That way, you get an expert’s point of view that you know is going to be thorough.

What to Learn from the Provider

There are some things that you can count on a home inspection teaching you about the property. such as the overall condition of the house. However, you should ask questions even if it is not a concern about some things. Here are some things to think about.

• The age of the roof and the length of life left in it – not only do you want to know where the potential leaks are, but also when you may need to replace it.

• The age and condition of the heating and cooling of the property – ensure it has a long life left, has been maintained and that there are no major problems with the system.

• The landscape – you are not looking for aesthetics here, but rather foundation problems, the way the land slopes (away from the house hopefully) and any potential problems with sewers.

• The presence of insects – this may not be as easy for you to spot as it is for the professional. However, you want to know if there are any potential problems, especially termites or other destructive creatures.

• The potential of water in the basement – a wet basement may not look wet and only a professional can spot this in some home inspections. However, this is critical to point out.
