Ben Rotondi of HouseMaster Home Inspections near Albany NY tells us that if you think you might eventually be doing a full home inspection on your house, you may also consider tools like electrical tester (circuit analyzer) and a moisture meter which are two commonly used tools in the home inspection business.

Filling up a tool box with the above mentioned tools will make any homeowner feel like they're an experienced handyman that has had many years of experience. That's just what the power of having the proper tools in place can do for the confidence of a homeowner and if you want to have that exact feeling make sure your tool box is equipped with the proper tools. If you spend the money on quality tools then you'll have a tool box in place that will last you a lifetime so try not to buy cheap tools just because it'll save you a dollar or two.
