How to Choose Your Next Home DIY Projects

Since the holidays are over and Spring is just around the corner, now is time to start planning those home DIY projects. But the question is how to choose which project to do. There are so many on the list.

You need to compile the total wish list and prioritize the projects. Then make sure you have the right tools to get the job done. And keep YouTube close to help you with the How-To part of the projects.

In prioritizing the projects, Veri Construction states in their post called Suggestions on How to Prioritize Your Home Remodeling Projects;

  1. Need – This can be driven by the need to repair your home. There can also be the need that is driven by a new addition to the family, such as a child or a parent.
  2. Desire – There can be that room in your home you never liked and now is the time to consider changing it. The emotional value to you could be very high, such as a larger bathroom shower to help make the morning a more pleasant experience.
  3. Gain in Resale Value – This is the type of remodeling project that is driven by the objective of increasing the value of your property.

Need is a top priority. But desire is important too. If you can add the ingredient of adding value to your home while meeting your needs and desires, you have chosen winning projects.

Now the issue is to choose a first project. One way to choose what project to tackle first is to start with a project that you can finish successfully and within budget. Know your skills, access to knowledge and the tools you will need. The success of a project is greatly effected by the tools you have. Those tools can be expensive. That is when you start to look at alternatives such as reconditioned tools.

DeWALT offers an excellent solution. DeWALT Reconditioned is a brand name owned by the DeWALT company. It is only applied to (1) DeWALT tools that (2) were returned to DeWALT, and (3) reconditioned by DeWALT.

These reconditioned tools have been restored to the same performance standards as new. And, DeWALT backs it up with the same Limited Lifetime Warranty they give with their new tools.

These are the types of tools that can become DeWALT Reconditioned:

  • Store display tools: These are the ones that are placed in stores to show off their inventory. They are routinely recycled back to DeWALT.
  • Customer returns: These are tools that customers return to a store, often because the customer gets the tool home and says, “wait, that’s not the thing I need.” If a tool has had any real use, it does not make it into the reconditioning assembly line.
  • Overstocks: Most DeWALT Reconditioned Tools were inventory for a store that stocked too many tools. Many that aren’t sold are returned to the factory. These tools will be examined and tested, and, if they pass the test they become DeWalt Reconditioned.

All of this means you can depend on DeWALT Reconditioned the same way that you would depend on new tools from DeWALT. Same tool, same company, same warranty, and same great quality.

So, make sure you choose the best projects that meets your needs, desires and increases your home resale value. If you are looking for quality tools that can be paid for over time, look into the Tools at AddvantageUSA.
