Top Handyman Tools Every Homeowner Needs

Owning a home comes with great responsibility and loads of maintenance. While you are setting up your new home or thinking of remodeling a few rooms, you will need some basic tools to make the process easy and quick. Without the proper tools, it will  take you hours of hard work on a small project or you won’t be able to complete the task at hand. In this guide, you will discover the top handyman tools every homeowner needs. 

Apollo Home Tool Kit

Every homeowner needs a well-stocked home tool kit. You want your handy tool kit to have everything you need whether it is a screwdriver or hammer. Home tool kits are great to have on hand while you are hanging photos or decorations, screwing screws into smaller items or even making sure everything is level. This Apollo Home Tool Kit has all that and more because it has 53-pieces. The tool kit includes a hammer, pliers, wrenches, screwdrivers, a bit driver and bits. All the tools are heat-treated and chrome-plated for long-lasting durability. What makes this kit so great is that it is under $45. 

Dewalt Cordless Drill Kit

Drills make setting up furniture or screwing screws way easier. Manually using a screwdriver can take loads of time and can cause hand cramps. Using a drill completes the process within seconds. This Dewalt Cordless Drill Kit includes a cordless drill, two batteries, a charger and a tool bag. It has a two-speed transmission and a brushless motor. Plus, you can easily illuminate your work area thanks to its LED footlight. And if anything happens to the drill, it has a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service and a 90-day money-back guarantee policy. 

Electrical Test Kit

Even though you won’t need to test your electricity very often, it is nice to have an electrical test kit on hand. An electrical test kit like Klein Tools Electrical Test Kit comes in handy to measure DC currents and AC/DC voltage and resistance and to detect any wiring issues in receptacles. The Klein Tools Electrical Test Kit multimeter is double insulation for better accuracy and protection and also saves all measurements. 

Dremel Cordless Rotary Tool

For quick, easy sanding projects around the house, this Dremel Cordless Rotary Tool is perfect to use. It comes with a 12-piece set that includes a charger, interchangeable nose caps, a wrench and more. This tool is great for beginners with its four different speeds, lightweight design, soft grip and easy accessory changes. Before the rotary tool dies, it has a LED battery life indicator that goes off to inform you when it is time to charge. The best part is that this tool is compatible with other Dremel tools and accessories. 

Chinex Bristle Paint Brushes

At one point or another, you are going to have a paint project. For small painting jobs, the Chinex Bristle Paint Brushes are the way to go. They come in a variety of brush styles, sizes and handle types. These brushes are great for many types of paint types including oil-based, solid stains, textured, compounds, water-based sealers/primers and water-based urethanes. Chinex paint brushes are easy to wash, so you can use them over and over again. 

Cutting Pliers

If you’re building your own tool kit or just want the most basic tools, every homeowner and crafter needs cutting pliers. Cutting pliers make it easier for you to cut through thin pieces of metal or wires. We recommend these Grainger Diagonal Cutting Pliers. They have a wide jaw, so you can easily place thicker items in for cutting. They are lightweight and easy to use. Plus, they are under $10.
