Are you preparing to undergo a major home renovation? Before you do, check out this list of three essential home remodeling tools.

The wonderful thing about owning your own home is that you own the right to do whatever you want with it. That includes giving it a much-needed facelift, inside and out.

Before you do, line up the right remodeling tools to get the job done right.

Renovating your home is the first step to upping its value. Minor updates around the home increases the appraised price. So if you ever think of selling, you get top dollar. Renovation gives a home a more personalized feel.

Homeowners often buy someone else’s design, but when you renovate, you get the home you want. Not to mention, you create more space when your dream home gets a makeover.

Are you preparing to undergo a major home renovation? Before you do, check out this list of three essential home remodeling tools.

1. One of the Top Remodeling Tools You Need Is a Dumpster

When homeowners remodel, they toss out a lot of junk. That junk sits out in front of the house and makes the property look a hot mess.

And although you’re trying to bring the property value up, trash out front brings it down. Rent a dumpster.

Renting a residential dumpster is a lot similar to renting a pod, except you put trash in it. It’s not a difficult request or process.

Call a local company that handles small or large jobs. Ask their rates then reserve a dumpster.

The best part is you don’t have to pick it up, they deliver the dumpster to you and remove it when it’s full.

Save yourself the headache of dealing with complaining neighbors. File your renovation junk in the dumpster.

2. Extension Cords

Power tools are the greatest thing man ever created for tough jobs. What they didn’t think through was the length of the cords.

Nothing’s more annoying than starting a job all gung-ho, and the tool you need doesn’t stretch far enough from the power outlet. Buy some extension cords.

Extension cords come already assembled, no electrical experience required. The best part is they come in a variety of lengths for small and major jobs. If you have an upstairs, downstairs project, consider looking into a 50 ft. orange extension cord.

3. A Hammer and Some Safety Glasses

Every renovation job calls for a hammer and some safety glasses unless you’re replacing light bulbs. Always protect your eyes and have something to remove and replace old nails.

Hammers aren’t expensive. They last for decades and they’re easy to store. A good pair of safety glasses may run you from $1 dollar upwards to $250. The price depends on the job and whether or not you have insurance.
