What Tools Do You Need For a Home Demolition Project?
Are you tired of that out-of-date bathroom? Do you want to knock out a wall and open up your living space? If you've decided to get your hands dirty and strip a room down to the studs, then the first step is making sure you're equipped to do the job quickly, efficiently and safely.
The list can go on and on for what tools will be needed, but we'll break it down to the top tools and equipment to start your next demolition project.
Before starting any demolition project, it's important to turn off the power at the breaker for the room you're destroying. This job is hard enough. You don't want to deal with electrical hazards on top of it all.
There might not be a more versatile weapon of destruction in your home demolition arsenal than the legendary sawzall. It's even fun to say! This bad boy can cut through just about anything in its way, and the sleek design allows you to cut drywall, wood, furniture or anything else.
Not everything has to be done with brute force. You can save yourself a lot of time, and energy by unscrewing furniture or plywood with this handy tool. Before you start your demo project, check out what type of hardware is in the room. Some furniture is put together with square-head screws or star-head screws that are easy to get out when you've got the right drill bits.
Besides just being a super suggestive and strange song by Peter Gabriel, a sledgehammer can make a nasty blow to anything you swing it at. And let's be honest, you're in this to destroy sh*t, right? These bad boys can range anywhere from 3 pounds to 16 pounds depending on the weight of the metal head, so make sure you chose a size you can handle.
The traditional hammer is easy to overlook when preparing for a demolition since other tools seem more powerful. However, your trusty hammer can get into tight spaces that other weapons of destruction can't. Plus it's a lot lighter and cheaper than everything else on this list.
With any demolition job there's going to be a lot of trash – and we mean A LOT. Where do you think it all goes?
