Tool hire

Hire the right tools for the job

Winters coming – are you going to be hot enough?

The weather is getting colder and the first thing that comes to mind? Heating! Houses in the UK are aRadiatorsll filled and fitted with Radiators -which is great – but the problem is that most of them were fitted ten, twenty, thirty years ago, or even longer! They may have been effective in the past, but over time they lose their efficiency and all your left with is a draughty house and a massive heating bill. Not good for your wallet or the planet!

You can hire radiators and heaters for the winter period that are twice as efficient as traditional radiators as an affordable way to keep rooms toasty any time of the year. It may be more cost effective than your current methods of heating, so a worthwhile avenue to investigate.

Home need a facelift? Try repainting!

If you’ve decided one of the rooms in your house needs a facelift it can be difficult to know where to start. Many people go straight to the shops and do things like buy new furniture and appliances – when there may be a cheaper way right under your nose!

You only need to buy a small amount of equipment, and tool hire can help for the stuff you don’t have. Embarking on a home renovation project is always a good way to bring a breath of fresh air into your home, but in order to do a good job, make sure you use the right tools.

Apart from arming yourself with an array of rollers, paint brushes and, of course, paint and primer, make sure you don’t forget a throw sheet for the floor, a good ladder, and getting the best tools to prepare the wall first.

Many accidents around the home come from things like falling off ladders that aren’t quite up to scratch. If your ladders not going to stand up to the job, don’t risk it. You can hire something like a fold up step platform for the weekend and do the job safely.

You can also consider tool hire for preparing walls for painting first. You might need to hire a hot air paint stripper to get the old paint off quickly, or a wallpaper stripper.Make sure you always allow enough time to do the job and consider your safety first!
