When doing home repairs, we all should have a few essential items on hand to solve basic issues.  Here are 7 tools every homeowner should have in their house to keep it running smoothly:

  -         Screwdriver Sets.  A Phillips and Flat head screwdriver in a large and small size of each.

 -         Flashlight.  Also, it would be wise to keep an extra set of batteries near your flashlight so that you are always prepared.  This to assist in repairs or if the power goes out.

 -         Claw Hammer. A good medium sized hammer is essential for when you need to pry up boards or wood trims, remove or hammer nails.

 -         Tape Measure - By having a tape measure you can ensure that your project starts out right.  Always remember to measure twice.

 -         Basic Safety Gear.  Safety goggles and sturdy work gloves can help protect you while tackling home projects, inside or out.

-         Plunger. Clogged sinks and toilets are all too common. It's best to have one just for the toilet.

-         Duct Tape. This is one of the most essential items for quick fixes. Duct tape is incredibly handy, water resistant and durable.

 You never know when you might need them but always keep them handy.
