Benefits of Renting Tools vs. Buying
If you’re getting ready to tackle a new DIY project or home renovation, you’re going to need tools and hardware to get the job done. Fortunately, hardware rentals are readily available to anyone who needs a specific tool but isn’t ready to purchase their own yet. There are several benefits to ACE hardware rentals that will make your next project a piece of cake.
#1 Save Your Money
Hardware tool rentals can save you up to hundreds of dollars on any given project. Rather than purchasing a tool or piece of equipment that you may only end up using a couple of times, you can rent the same tool for a fraction of the cost. Remember, hardware can be expensive and the pieces aren’t always versatile, limiting your use of them.
#2 Learn About the Tool
Renting hardware allows you to talk to the rental staff about how the equipment works and how one should properly operate it. They are very knowledgeable about all of the products we rent out and are happy to show you how they work and give you some helpful tips for best use.
#3 Try Before Buying
As stated above, some hardware can be very expensive and difficult to return. Many hardware stores in Reno may refuse your request for a refund if the tool has been used, but it’s not always so easy to tell if you’re going to like it or not. So what do you do?
Rentals gives you the opportunity to try out a tool before you buy it. This can help prevent you from getting stuck with a tool you really dislike.
#4 No Maintenance Required
Most tools will require some sort of upkeep and maintenance. Fortunately, our rentals always come complete and in perfectly working condition. And while it is expected that renters will use the equipment with care to prevent damage, there are no maintenance requirements to renting the hardware or tools.

As the seasons change, you might realize you need a different look in your home. A room can lose its luster when it has old paint or wallpaper on it. A proper coat of paint can truly light up a room. This can pair with any style you might like and there are many fun things you can do with paint. For a first timer, things can get confusing which is why we composed a list of tips for painting walls.
You might not realize, but like anything else, walls can get dirty. In most cases, they are left without being cleaned for years (who has that kind of time). As you plan to create a new look in your home the first step is to wipe down those walls. You can remove dirt/lint/dust with a tack cloth. After grabbing a bucket, water, and a cleaner give your wall a well-deserved wipe down. Give your walls a chance to air dry by removing all outlet and light switch covers. Lastly, we don’t want you to get anything on your furniture, make sure to cover anything and everything!
Find a Perfect Match
We all have different styles and ideas of how our houses should look. One of the most important tips for painting walls is making sure you get the right paint. Most hardware stores have services to match your paint. Along with getting the right color to know the difference between oil and water based paints, use denatured alcohol on a rag to wipe existing paint. If paint comes off on the rag the paint is water based. If there is no residue that comes off then you will have an oil based paint.
When you think about paint in a house I’m sure your first thoughts are different colors or plain neutral color. The last thing on your mind is about the different sheens incorporated into colors. This feature is actually very important for certain areas in your house. It either brightens and enhances how your wall looks, giving more detail (shinier sheen). Flat paint is good for a low traffic room such as bedrooms and hallways.
Rollers & Brushes
Paint is definitely needed in order to paint a house. However, the tools to apply the product are also extremely important. Having quality materials can help decrease streaks and help apply a smoother finish. When buying your materials, it is better to buy more. The reason is you will spend less time cleaning rollers and less money on running water. If you need a break once you start painting, cover your brush or roller with plastic bags and keep them in the fridge. This will keep the paint fresh and ready to use once you start your project again. Once the project is finally finished, store your brushes in a plastic baggie. This way the next time you use them they won’t be dried out.
Don’t be fooled, taking on a painting project can be exciting. However, it is a long process and knowing some tips for painting walls will help make this adventure a little easier. First, use low odor and VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) paints for a safer environment for you and your family. When you finally choose a color make sure to use contrasting trims to make the room pop. Also, if you are using dark paints make sure you let the wall dry for 6 hours between coats. This way you won’t rewet the paint causing streaks and patches to happen during your next coat. Lastly, make sure to save some of your paint for future touch-ups throughout your house.
