Hardware & Tools
The success of any construction or repair project depends on the right hardware and tools – without them, the project will go nowhere. This applies both to large-scale building projects and home repairs, so basic tool and hardware sets for homeowners are as much in demand as professional tools are.
For small repairs and odd jobs, basic sets of hand tools and power tools are found in almost every house, so supply and demand of these tools such as a basic power drill, a jigsaw, screwdrivers, hammers, etc, will always be strong.
Good quality power drills are either corded or cordless. Corded drills offer more power and are more reliable, but cordless drills are more convenient and mobile, and are becoming more dominant in the average toolbox. Other tools where this choice exists are screwdrivers, cutting tools and sanders.
Garden Tools and Hardware
The average garden requires maintenance and care at least once a week, so basic garden tools are another big sub-sector of tools and hardware. A standard set of garden tools includes manual tools like shears, clippers, trowels, wheelbarrows and shovels, and also garden power tools such as lawnmowers, strimmers and leaf blowers.
Professional garden tools – usually for large grounds in public areas – are more varied and more reliable. They include high-power lawn cutting tools, hedge trimmers and watering systems, as well as more specialist tools like leaf blowers and garden equipment for working with soil or large flowerbeds.
Professional Hardware Tools
Professional building tools are the backbone of any construction project. Construction, maintenance and repair involves specialist, high-precision work that can only be handled with high-quality professional hardware and tools. These tasks include joining structural elements, breaking old structures, installing interior items, and connecting buildings to utilities networks.
Sledgehammers, power drills and jack-hammers are widely used for when sheer power is needed, while other professional tools such as drills, measuring tools and levelling tools are for where more precision is required.
