Every project is different, and even if you’ve performed similar projects before, it’s always better to take time to prepare for a project before it begins. Not only will it save you time in the long run, it could even save you money too.
Go through all of your tools and see what you have. If some of your tools are looking a little worse for wear, take note of that too. When tools are worn down they can actually cause injury and damage. Creating a detailed inventory of exactly what you have will help you find out what needs to be purchased in order to successfully complete your next project.
Consider The Materials
Make sure you are familiar with exactly which materials you’ll be working with on this project. Whether it’s a kitchen renovation, a siding installation, or roofing project, if you need to provide the materials for the job, make sure you create an estimate on how much raw material you’ll need. This also plays into which tools you might need to rent or buy beforehand because certain materials require the use of specialized equipment as well as bits and blades with certain specifications.
Make a List
Once you have a good sense of your inventory and which materials you’ll be working with, you can put together a list of all the tools you’ll be renting or buying for this contracting project.
Buy or Rent Your Tools
Unsure whether to buy or rent? Each option is best suited for different situations, but renting is a great way to try out new tools if you aren’t sure about it. Renting is also great for those tools you only need to use a few times a year. On the other hand, purchasing is a bigger investment but it will save you money and keep you from constantly having to check in and out your rental tools.
