3 Tools For Every New Homeowner

Becoming a new homeowner is exciting. You get to have your own dream house to do whatever you want with. This is especially exciting for those homeowners who love a little DIY and don't mind getting their hands dirty if they have to. It's also a great idea to be prepared in your new home for any minor fixes. So what kind of tools should a new homeowner have on hand that can benefit their desire to DIY and also keeps everything in working order? Here you will find the answer in the top 3 tools every new home should have!

  1. A hammer. It's a classic and straightforward tool, one end makes things go in, and the other can pull them out. It is especially important to have on hand in your new home. A hammer can be used to add flair to a room by just using it to nail spots to hang decor and art. It can also be used to fix some places maybe missed by previous repairs. A loose nail sticking out from a corner or an uneven picture that can be set by merely adjusting the position of the nail. 
  2. A screwdriver. Preferably one of those with interchangeable heads to go between a Phillips and flat head. This will come in handy when it comes to getting into those hard to open spots. A small screwdriver set would be a good idea to have around as well, making sure you have the right tools to open up even the smallest of screws. 
  3. Lastly, we have a tape measure. This gives new homeowners accuracy down to the centimeter and can help provide the right dimensions for new additions in the home. An even better option would be a tape measure with a level attached. That way you can make sure your projects are even before using any of the other-other tools listed here.

Of course, there are many other tools that it would be a good idea to have tucked away for a new homeowner. Whatever choice of tools you decide on, make sure to have these three essentials, and you'll be prepared for almost anything!

Victory Lights was the best choice we could have made for retro fitting with LED in the office building.  We received insightful consultation from their project leader, and are very appreciative of the high level of service they provided from start to finish.  The new lights that they helped us select are excellent quality, and look wonderful in the offices we lease.  We are excited about the beautiful, clean, and quiet light as well as the reduced energy/maintenance cost that we are experiencing.  It was a pleasure doing business with Victory Lights.

Since we have changed all our light bulbs in the common area of this 3 story, 169 apartment retirement community, we have not changed one single light bulb.

In the long haul, it saved us an enormous amount of money and time.

Chad has been very helpful with our LED retrofit project. He and his staff have not only been informative but have made all our projects hassle free.

Marc M., Chief Building Engineer, Healthcare Trust of America

The LED retro fit was a huge task, due to ceilings being 18' with a finished drywall ceiling.  Victory went to great efforts in finding the right lights resulting the least amount of remodel/tear out of old lights,while ensuring the accurate lighting needed for our jewelry showroom.  We are delighted to report that our year-to-date utility bill is down 23%.  Victory was wonderful to work with and the staff was amazing.  

Anfesa M., Anfesa's Jewelers

Victory Lights was instrumental in guiding us through the process of retrofitting the existing 20,000 sf Building with LED lighting to reduce our energy cost and maintenance cost.  This included working to ensure we received the best possible rebate available from Progress Energy.  Chad was extremely knowledgeable and patient through the entire process.
