2: A Set Of Hammers

A hammer or a set of hammers is essential so that you can always hang objects or pry away objects that no longer have a place on the walls is best to get a collection of a number of different hammers of all shapes, sizes and forces, so that you are able to always prepared for any project.

3: A Spirit Level

Any time you are doing a project that requires hanging, or dexterity and precision, you will need a level. These levels will let you know that the object is straight as opposed to tilted or at an angle. You can test out a level to make sure it works by analyzing the position of the bubble by laying flat, and then laying it on its sides make sure that the bubble is in the same location. This can be done on any kind of surface, level or otherwise.

4: Pliers

A great set of pliers is incredibly important for any toolkit. There are a number of different types of pliers you can choose between, including needle nose, adjustable width and flat nose.

Elbert quoted best price, helped design and then delivered timely on an unconventional project to improve disability... access throughout our home. Replacing a treacherous step-down into a family room with a custom landing, ramp and rail, he reversed the swing of an existing, large interior French Door and created a new "Hobbit Door" doubling access for all our family members to make quicker, safer exit from the house in case of emergency and more easily enjoy the garden. A new Barn Door conceals it beautifully!read more

Preferred Contractors built us a 26 by 10 composite deck with a awning that covers half of the deck. The covering is... connected to the roof by sky lifts and the whole project looks awesome. Elbert and Lane were able to answer questions and provide explanations and adapt to requested changes. The price was very good and the quality of work was great. Thanks for the deck outstanding deck and covering guys!read more

Elbert installed a new door for us which looks great and created a railway stair guard which he had never done before... now. His work was outstanding. He is easy to reach, personable, knowledgable and fair in his pricing. We will need more work done on the house at some point and we will without doubt go to Elbert first.read more

They did a great job at a fair price. Finished in a timely manner and very respectful people. Would absolutely use these guys again.read more

We had Elbert replace some dry-rotted supports on our front porch as well as our carport. He arrived on schedule for a... free estimate and we thought he quoted us a fair price for the work. He arrived on schedule to do the work, did a great job and cleanup when he was finished. We are very happy with his work and would use him again for any other projects as well as recommend his work to others.read more
