Every household handyman is ready for a challenge. However, the smart do-it-yourself handyman knows when it is best to call a professional.
Though a fix may seem quick and easy, some projects require the services of an expert for safety’s sake. Sure, there is probably a YouTube video or a blog somewhere with instructions for the family handy man – but sometimes the risk outweighs any bragging rights.
Here at E.B Tool Company, we love a good DIY project. However, it’s better to get support for:
Electrical: The results of a misstep in electrical work can be disastrous. For anything more than a basic fixture installation, call in the experts. Electrocution can easily be fatal, and accounts for over 30,000 injuries annually.
Asbestos: Always call certified professionals for asbestos removal. Often mandated by law, failure to comply can lead to extensive fines and could endanger the health of your family and neighbors.
Gas: For all repairs involving gas lines – from moving an appliance to installing a new one – call a professional. A leak can lead to the silent killer, carbon monoxide poisoning.
Roofing: Replacing a shingle may not be that tough, but sizeable repairs involve more than meets the eye. Carrying tools up and down a ladder is difficult, and slipping and falling becomes more likely as the roof pitch steepens.
Plumbing: It’s one thing to change a faucet or a toilet, but when it comes to pipes and drains, call the professionals. A mistake can lead to a big mess and a hefty bill down the road.
For any home repair project, E.B. Tool Company suggests you consider the risks, get help when it is needed, and pick the right tools. Tool box essentials like the KwickGripper, our own innovative fastener remover, can reduce strain on the user and cause minimal damage to materials.
Making a lot of projects simple and easy for a DIY handyman, the KwickGripper from E.B. Tool Company is high on the list of important tools for home improvement. Get one today by contacting E.B. Tool Company at 608-561-8665.
