As time passes, your new home may need small repairs. If you need to fix something in your home, you can call someone to help you with the repairs. However, if it is something easy, you can take care of it yourself. It is good to always bee prepared with the right tools. House Beautiful lists the top tools you should always hold in your new home.
Be sure to always have an assortment of sizes and types like Phillips, slotted, and square-drive.
House Beautiful recommends a 16 or 25 foot Stanley Powerlock, which is big enough for projects around the house but not too bulky to carry around.
HEX KEYS AND TORX SECURITY BITS
It's best to get a multi-bit driver with hex key bits. "The bits have hex shanks so you can turn them by hand or chuck them into an impact driver or drill."
There are two styles to choose from: traditional push-out and a foldout pocket-knife style. Always use caution when handling knives.
Clamps come in several sizes and always come in handy!
You always want to protect yourself when you're doing home repairs. Gloves can prevent burns, splinters, and cuts.
Even doing something as simple as hanging a frame on a wall will be much easier with a level. The best ones to get project a 360-degree beam vertical out the front and out the side.
These are just a few of the tools you should have in your new home to take care of simple jobs and repairs. To see the full list from House Beautiful, click here.
