If you are looking for a low-cost fastening tool that is still built with quality and integrity, consider the benefits of a Freeman nailer or stapler. Unlike several other value-brand pneumatic tools, Freeman offers a seven-year manufacturer's limited warranty on non-wearable parts - providing added peace of mind for any value seeking customer. Tools with contractor quality at a DIY price-point, purchasing a Freeman nailer or stapler often offsets the cost of renting, providing the added incentive of long-term ownership.
 
Freeman Tools 
With several flooring and finishing nailers that have received top consumer ratings, Freeman tools boast the following standard features, which include an anodized aluminum cylinder for additional durability, Teflon o-rings for less wear and tear on cylinders and pistons, an anodized aluminum magazine for a smoother feed, and an electro-phoresis treatment which offers superior rust and corrosion resistance. Case and point - these tools are built to last.

February 24, 2015 : Contractor Tips For Homeowner Renovation & Remodeling

Contractor Tips For Homeowner Renovation & Remodeling

Wrapping up remodeling month on Nail Gun Depot, let's hear from the experts - the contractors who tackle home renovation projects daily. Get insight from the professionals, when you learn the do's and don'ts in home remodeling, here on the Nail Gun Network.
 
Interior Renovation 
  • Don't Delay Progress - Taking too long to decide on materials, colors and other general design aesthetics can really slow progress. It's important to be comfortable with your choices, but being too indecisive can ultimately put the brakes on a renovation project. Likewise, be careful not to backtrack by making major changes mid-project. Making changes after materials have been purchased and installed can be costly, adding unnecessary expense.
  • Do Purchase Your Own Materials - Depending on who you talk to, you will get different points of view on this subject. The real decision ultimately hinges on your level of comfort. If you are an avid DIYer, you might prefer to shop for your own materials to guarantee 100 percent control over cost. Most contractors will mark up the materials they purchase - however, letting someone else take care of procuring materials can be much more convenient, and will better ensure correct items are purchased on the first try.
  • Don't Start A Major Renovation Without Emergency Funds - An emergency fund - also known as a contingency fund - is an absolute must for any major renovation or remodeling project, especially in older structures or homes that have not been maintained. When a homeowner starts thinking about renovating, they don't often think about the hidden problems that demolition might uncover. Rotten wood, mold, faulty electrical, and other structural imperfections are all very common risks that remodeling can uncover. To ensure these issues can be repaired properly, it's important to set funds aside ahead of time. Most recommend setting at least an additional 5 percent of your overall budget aside.
  • Do Live Elsewhere - During a major renovation, most homeowners prefer to keep away from the construction. This makes it easier for a contractor to move around without disrupting occupants. It also makes it easier for the homeowner to live comfortably. Sometimes, a costly renovation does not leave the option to live elsewhere. If this is the case, try to find a comfortable retreat away from the hustle and bustle of construction.
  • Don't Take On A Project You Aren't Comfortable With - When in doubt, leave it to the professionals. More often than not, if you don't have a firm understanding of what you are doing, a contractor will end up getting involved anyway - fixing mistakes. Some projects are more complex than others, so know your limitations from the start. For many DIYer's taking on their first big remodel, consider consulting with a contractor as you move through the motions of your project - even if you do most of the labor yourself.

February 10, 2015 : DIY Tips: How To Install Flawless Drywall

DIY Tips: How To Install Flawless Drywall

In honor of Nail Gun Depot's Screw Gun Showdown, let's take a look at one of the top uses for a screw fastening system, installing drywall. An important step in any major home renovation or remodeling project, knowing how to install drywall can save time and money. Learn how to install drywall, the best tools for the job, and other useful DIY tips - here on the Nail Gun Network
 
Quik Drive Drywall Attachment 
Most new construction projects mandate the use of drywall screws when installing drywall. Screws are certainly ideal, as their thread provides better holding power - especially in climates where wood is prone to expand and contract regularly. In some circumstances, drywall nails can be used to hang wallboard, but beware, over time nail popping and other imperfections to the wall might occur as the wood frame expands and contracts. For long-term quality, we recommend using collated drywall screws and a screw gun - for fast, easy, cost-effective drywall installation. Senco DuraSpin and Simpson Quik Drive are two competitive screw fastening systems that continue to offer best-in-class performance.
 
Project Note: Most Drywall Screws Require A Phillips Drive.
 
Another benefit to using screws over nails for drywall installation, it generally takes less screws to complete the project. Be certain to consult your local building code before beginning installation of drywall, as different regions have different requirements. Beyond building code, don't fall victim to silly, yet expensive errors.
 
Senco DuraSpin Drywall Installation 
Even for beginners, drywall installation is relatively easy to pick up. Just pay careful attention to the following:
  • Prior to installation, make sure the lumber you are fastening drywall board to is within an acceptable range of moisture content, less than 19 percent by most standards. As damp wood dries out, it can lead to popping of fasteners - and splitting at seams.
  • Don't overlook sagging panels - particularly when installing a ceiling. Make sure to drive extra screws into place while pressing firmly on the loose board. In some extreme cases, an additional brace or bracket may be required to guarantee a firm fit. Likewise, watch for bulging at your vertical seams. If the drywall board swells at the seam - once it has been taped and sealed - it may require sanding. You can prevent this issue by ensuring there is no gap between drywall boards during installation.
  • Don't take the easy route when it comes to corners. Use a corner guard versus drywall tape and spackle. A corner guard will hold up better in the long run and is typically easier to work with than tape. You should also mark your studs and joists prior to installation of a drywall board. This will help improve the accuracy of your drive and will prevent additional repair work in problem areas.
  • Watch for imperfections in drywall tape. Don't ignore bubbles, streaks, splits or other noticeable imperfections in drywall tape as it is laid. If air is allowed between the tape and base, it will lead to separation later on. Tape that is not secured properly can eventually peel and will require repair and repainting. In areas where warm and cold air are allowed to converge regularly, eventual loosening and separation of tape from the drywall base is almost inevitable.
  • Make sure your screw gun is set to the proper depth. Depending on the thickness of the board, determine the appropriate screw length and depth adjustment for your tool. Driving too deep can cause noticeable divets in the drywall. Driving too short leaves the screw's head protruding. If installed properly, the screw's head should sit slightly below the drywall surface - leaving just enough room for compound to smooth the surface.
Drywall Board 
To recap, make sure your framing is dry, mark your studs and joists for accurate drive locations, hold the drywall board firmly against the wood frame while fastening in place, line up boards for accuracy, scan and repair imperfections, and enjoy.
