When you buy your first home, you also need to purchase some necessities that you will need to maintain your property. A house without a good toolkit is like a bathroom without the right products. It may seem fine at first, but lacking the right tools will eventually mean that your house starts to fall apart.
Since you’re the kind of man that understands the importance of buying the most essential products for your hair care regimen, you should also know what tools you need to for your home. Get started with these five items.
A Sturdy Toolbox
Craig Phillips became popular for winning the first Big Brother reality TV competition in 2000. Since then, he’s established himself as a home improvement expert who knows a lot about tools. When asked about essential tools, Craig mentions his toolbox before anything else.
A sturdy toolbox will help you keep all of your tools organized. That way, you always know where they are when you need them.
Before you buy any tools, make sure you have a proper toolbox. Craig knows what he’s talking about.
An adjustable wrench will come in handy whenever you need to tighten or loosen a nut or bolt. Regular wrenches are also useful, but it’s hard to beat the adjustable kind. By choosing an adjustable wrench, you’ll save money without sacrificing usefulness.
Things that you can do with an adjustable wrench include:
- Tighten a leaky faucet.
- Replace an old shower head.
- Put together furniture.
- Install a new toilet.
A cordless drill does more than create holes. It also gives you a quick, easy way to install screws. With the right bit set, you don’t even need regular screwdrivers in your house.
Cordless drills become essential when you need to:
- Install new door or cabinet hinges.
- Hang heavy pictures.
- Replace old drywall.
- Upgrade aging electrical outlets.
Make sure that you buy a bit set that includes drill bits and screw bits. Missing one is like washing your hair with 2-in-1 shampoo conditioner. You’ll never get the results that you want.
A Claw Hammer
A claw hammer gives you a way to hammer and extract nails. If your nail goes in crooked, then you just flip the hammer around and use the claw to pull the nail out. It’s extremely handy for men interested in home improvement.
With a good hammer, you can:
- Remove old drywall, wood, and carpet tack strips.
- Repair loose deck boards.
- Replace damaged roof shingles.
OK, so you might question whether duct tape is really a tool. How you define it doesn’t matter much, though, because duct tape has so many uses. If you need proof, just check out the multiple MythBuster episodes where Adam Savage uses duct tape to do everything from lift a 5,000-pound car to build an entire boat. You read that right: An entire boat made exclusively of duct tape.
What can you do with duct tape in your home? How about:
- Plug leaks until you have a chance to seal them permanently.
- Protect window frames while you paint walls.
- Cover holes in screen doors and windows until you can replace them.
It’s your duty to prepare yourself for the unexpected. While you’re at it, order some HCO1 hair serum to prevent thinning hair and schedule a signature haircut at BSG. Now that you own a home, you deserve to update your look.
