Essential tools for a DIY handyman

Handyman services are always just a phone call away at Showroom Condition. While many people prefer to outsource all their home improvement needs, some people like the challenge of DIY jobs. If you’re interested in putting together your own handyman toolbox for DIY tasks, these are the tools you will need:

A drill

Regardless of what you’re doing in and around the house, you will need a drill. This is probably the most essential tool in a toolbox. In any home, there are always screws which need to be tightened or things that need to be hung – a drill will help you get the job done.

A hammer

The next must-have in a toolbox is a hammer. Not only does a hammer win you ‘Man Points,’ it is vital for any DIY-er.

Pliers

There are a few different types of pliers you will need in a toolbox. These pliers include flat nose (also known as slip joint) pliers. The big brother of the flat nose plier is the tongue and groove point plier (these usually have adjustable widths which can come in handy when you are working with larger appliances or pipes). Combination pliers are also useful because, as the name suggests, they can do a combination of things – they can grab and crush or they can snip something off.

These are only a few of the types of tools you will need for your toolbox. If you’re unsure of the right techniques or tools, take the hassle out of DIY jobs by contacting our professional handyman Showroom Condition today.
