• Reasons to Rent a Generator

    A generator is a useful tool to have on a jobsite and at a home for a variety of reasons. Renting a generator is more attractive than buying one in many cases, especially when the equipment is going to be used on a jobsite. Should you consider renting a generator? Here are some of the reasons to consider renting this useful tool.  

    The most obvious reason to rent a generator for a jobsite is so you can get power when you need it. For large sites, many companies choose to rent multiple generators, so that different areas of the site can get power at the same time. For homeowners, generators can come in handy when you know your power will be disconnected for a specific project or you know that there is a storm coming that could lead to outages. Renting a generator is preferable to buying one for occasional use because it is more cost effective and frees you from worry about maintenance.

  • How to Use Sandpaper Properly

    Sandpaper is used to prep surfaces for painting and staining. If you’ve never used sandpaper before, this important tool can be a little trickier than it may seem. This video will show you techniques that will help. 

    Don’t try to use sandpaper sheets flat on surfaces with just your hand. Instead, wrap the sandpaper around a block of wood or other handheld implement and staple it in place. This will help you get the traction you need to sand effectively. Be sure to choose coarse sandpaper for smoothing wood and fine sandpaper for painted surfaces.
