How to Assemble a Basic Household Toolbox

Being a homeowner comes with a long list of duties and responsibilities. One of which is to attend to home maintenance problems while waiting for the pros. Luckily, minor home maintenance issues can be pretty easy to deal with, especially if you have the right tools for the job.

In today’s article, your trusted home improvement expert Handyman Connection® of West Omaha shares a list of basic tools you should have in your home. 

Measuring Tape

Whether you’re interested in performing home repairs or not, you have to have a tape measure handy because chances are you’ll be needing to measure something in or around the home. It could be a new piece of furniture or a picture frame. In any case, a measuring tape is essential to taking proper measurements. A 25-foot acrylic or nylon tape measure is ideal because it won’t crack or split.

Screwdriver Set

Screws and bolts come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Needless to say, your trusty Phillips head screwdriver won’t be enough. Save yourself from having to make multiple trips to the local hardware store by investing in a screwdriver set that can deal with whatever type of screw that’ll come your way.

Pliers

You’ll need other types of pliers to accomplish different tasks. Needless to say, the needle-nose pliers you’ve had since you got the house simply won’t cut it.

Hammer

If you’ve got some picture frames, works of art, or shelves that you’d like to hang up, you’re going to need a hammer. There are also other sizes of hammers for different types of projects.

Keep in mind that while these tools can help you accomplish quick fixes. For the more complex home maintenance problems, you should always turn to reliable professionals, like our team at Handyman Connection of West Omaha.

If you’ve got home maintenance problems that your toolbox can’t fix, call us today at (402) 819-4545 to schedule an appointment.
