  • 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.

    These and other tips should set the foundation for success in any home renovation or remodel. For advice on the tools to take on your remodeling project, consult the Nail Gun Network or contact a specialist at Nail Gun Depot!

  • DIY Tips: How To Install Flawless Drywall

    An important step in nearly any major home renovation project? Installing drywall. Knowing how to do it yourself can save time and money. We offer you a few tips and discuss the best tools for the job, here on the Nail Gun Network.

    Fasteners First

    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 a screw gun and collated drywall screws for a fast, cost-effective drywall installation. Two competitive screw fastening systems, Senco DuraSpin and Simpson Quik Drive, offer best-in-class performance.

    DuraspinDrywallAttachment

    Another benefit to using screws over nails for drywall installation is that it generally takes fewer screws to complete the project. Pro Tip: Most drywall screws require a Phillips head drive.

    Even for beginners, drywall installation is relatively easy to pick up. Just pay careful attention to the following:

    Prepare for Installation

    Be certain to consult your local building code before beginning drywall installation, as different regions have different requirements. Beyond building code, don't fall victim to silly, yet expensive errors. Gather all of your tools, and don't forget the small one. For instance, have a tape measure handy to maintain straight lines.

    As damp wood dries out, it can lead to popping of fasteners and splitting at seams. 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).

    Make a Flawless Application

    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's been taped and sealed, it may require sanding. You can prevent this issue by ensuring there is no gap between drywall boards during installation.

    Senco DuraSpin Drywall

    Don't Take the Easy Route

    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

    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.

    Quikdrive Attachment

    Use the Proper Depth

    Depending on the thickness of the board, determine the appropriate screw length and depth adjustment for your screw gun. 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.

    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.

  • Screw Gun Showdown - Simpson's Quik Drive Screw System

    February is remodeling month at Nail Gun Depot - and what better way to celebrate remodeling month than by kicking off our FIRST-EVER Screw Gun Showdown. If you work in a renovation or remodeling trade, chances are you've used either a Quik Drive screw system and/or a Senco DuraSpin screw gun. Used for drywall installation, deck building, metal roofing, general construction and much more - both screw systems are top-rated in their class - but which one is right for you? You can learn more about Simpson's Quik Drive, and Senco's DuraSpin - right here on the Nail Gun Network.
    Screw Gun Showdown
    For part-one in our Screw Gun Showdown series, let's take an in-depth look at Quik Drive's screw fastening systems - featuring some of their top-rated tools. Per Simpson Strong-Tie's website, Quik Drive is designed to perform optimally when used for the following applications: subflooring/sheathing, decks/docks, drywall, fiberglass-backed gypsum sheathing, fiber-cement siding, standing-seam metal roofing, exposed fastener metal roofing, tile roofing, steel framing, steel decking, underlayment, truck beds, crating, truss ply fastening, and ledgers on steel - among others. With Simpson screw fastening tools, the type of application you fasten determines the type of Quik Drive system you require.
    Quik Drive Apps
    Different from Senco's DuraSpin, which we will cover in the second part of this series, Quik Drive screw systems are customizable, composed of various components that are paired to tackle a specific set of applications. A traditional Quik Drive system consists of three main components - a motor, an extension (for applications that require bending or reaching), and an attachment (designed for a specific application). The motor is relatively universal, and is more or less based on user preference - Nail Gun Depot specializes in Makita-powered screw gun motors for Quik Drive. The extension arm is based on the type of application you are screwing into place, but is not necessarily required - for example, you might not use an extension for drywall installation, whereas you would for deck fabrication. The most unique piece to the puzzle, the attachment, determines what you will be fastening. Quik Drive attachments vary depending on the type of fastener an application requires - just think of each Quik Drive Auto Feed System kit like pairing wine and cheese.
    Quik Drive System
    The Screw Gun Showdown features the following Quik Drive screw systems:
    • PROSDDM25K collated screw system drives 1" to 3" collated drywall screws and is excellent for contractors and remodelers who drive flooring, decking, drywall and fiber cement siding screws. The expanded depth range allows for countersink in high density OSB.
    Quik Drive Attachment
    Quik Drive also offers a limited-lifetime warranty on all of its QDPRO attachments - providing added peace of mind for contractors who need to get the most out of their tools.
    Quik Drive Drywall App
    Something else to keep in mind, though not included in the Screw Gun Showdown, Fein recently released the ASCS6.3 cordless motor that features a built-in Quik Drive adapter - so you can plug in any Quik Drive attachment on the go, no hassle.
    Fein Cordless Motor For Quik Drive
    Now, you can view Simpson Strong-Tie's library of Quik Drive demonstration, installation and application videos.
     
    Quik Drive PRO200
    Last, but not least, with any eligible Quik Drive system purchase via the Screw Gun Showdown - just use the promo code "SCREWGUN" - you will receive 5% off your purchase, a FREE QDDECKCLIP-RC Decking Nose Clip, and automatic entry to win a Quik Drive drywall attachment at the promotion's end.
    Let the showdown begin!

  • How To Build & Install Your Own Kitchen Cabinets

    Chilly temperatures and shorter periods of daylight mean one thing - winter is near. With Halloween less than a week away, it's time to start thinking about the indoor projects you've been putting off all summer. If you're looking to renovate your kitchen, consider building and/or installing your own kitchen cabinets - a project that can save thousands of dollars if done correctly.
    OMER Cabinet Trim
    Before you start, make sure you are up for the challenge. If you've never tackled a project like this before, you might want to purchase pre-built cabinets and jump straight to installation. If you decide to start from scratch, keep in mind this project will take a good amount of time and dedication to complete - especially for larger kitchens. However, for the master woodworker, the end result could be well worth the time - just make sure you have a helper or two for lifting and mounting.
    Building Your Cabinets
    If you are starting from scratch, make sure you have the proper materials. Traditionally, cabinets are about 24" deep and 34.5" tall - with a 25" deep counter top - which adds up to an overall height of 3 feet. To calculate the placement for upper cabinets, add 18" to 20" to the counter height. Subtract the difference from your overall ceiling height to determine the size range available for your upper cabinets. Keep in mind, regular wall cabinet depth is 12" to 14". Lower cabinet width can range from 12" to 60" - divided down in 3" increments. Make sure you also account for door size when planning the size of your cabinets.
    Next, you will need to cut your materials for assembly. For the sides, appearance really doesn't matter (unless it's an edge cabinet) - as long as your material is sturdy enough to support the cabinet, counter and all of the contents inside your cabinet. You might find that 3/4" plywood or manufactured board works well. Once the sides have been cut to proper dimensions, clamp your two sides together and use a saw to cut out a toe-kick (notch) where the base of your floor cabinets will be. For upper cabinets, you will not need a toe-kick. To finish up prepping material, cut the bottom panel, the face panels, as well as two base panels and two top braces - base panels and top braces not needed for wall cabinets.
    Moving to assembly, you will want to put together the base first. Make sure you have a high-quality wood glue and power drill or screw gun available for this step, as you will attach your base panels to the bottom panel. Make sure to allow the proper amount of space for your toe-kick before gluing together. Drive screws into the base panels to confirm a secure fit. Add your side panels, secure the top braces, and nail the back on using a finish nailer. Use braces or corner brackets to secure the unit and reinforce its integrity. Install shelves and face panels before attaching your cabinets to the wall.
    Depending on the thickness of board you are working with, Bostitch is now offering its all-new Smart Point line of finish nailers. Smart Point finish nailers feature a unique nose that increases the capability of these tools - while decreasing the amount of damage caused to a surface during firing.
    Bostitch Smart Point
    Installing Your Cabinets
    For time conscious DIYer's and renovators that skipped the previous steps and purchased pre-built cabinets from the store, it's now time to install your new kitchen cabinets. Installation is relatively easy - especially for floor cabinets. Simply fit your cabinets where they are intended to be installed, and drive screws through the back panel into studs in the wall. For wall cabinets - where additional support is imperative - you will also need to secure "L" brackets into studs in the wall, to help support these hanging cabinets at their base.
    To drive screws quickly and effectively, we recommend a Senco DuraSpin Screw Gun. With several different fasteners to choose from, the new Senco DuraSpin comes highly recommended by many of the Pro's.
    Senco DuraSpin
    Fit your door panels and fasten - assuming they haven't been installed yet. Depending on the type of kitchen cabinet you are building or installing, you will also have to install your counter, sink, decorative trim or any additional accessories not mentioned.
    Be sure to pay careful attention to manufacturer specs on any material or pre-manufactured goods. Always follow manufacturer assembly, installation and safety requirements. Keep in mind that this is an overview of tips and tricks for kitchen cabinet assembly and installation. Every kitchen is different, and might require additional steps or measurements be taken.

  • Which Tool Do I Need For My Woodworking Project?

    Getting ready to start a woodworking project? Maybe you aren't sure what tools you need to complete your project? Let's take a look at some of the tools you might need to tackle woodworkingwhether starting your first project or just adding a new tool to your collection.

    There isn't one specific woodworking tool that's more important than another for your workshopit really just depends on the project you're looking to take on. Unless you get a battery-powered, cordless fastening tool, you will need an air compressor to power any nail gun or staple gun you purchase.

    Start With A Finish

    If you're just getting into woodworking or DIY projects around the home, you'll probably want to start with a finish, brad or pin nailer. These tools are most commonly selected for smaller woodworking projects such as furniture and cabinet building, trim work, and craft projects.

    Similar to a finish nailer, you might also consider a finish stapler, depending on the small project you're working on. Staple guns can be particularly useful for furniture and upholstery projects. Upholstery staplers are an absolute must-have tool if you're refinishing a chair or sofa.

    Getting Structural

    Looking for something a bit larger to build? For sheds, home additions, tree houses, or anything else that requires a structural frame, you'll need a framing nailer. These nail guns have the power to drive large framing nails, which are mandatory for any structural project. Once a structure has been framed, you might find a screw gun useful for adding any finishing touches to your project, such as drywall or deck boards.

    In the Palm of Your Hand

    Last, but not least, don't rule out a palm nailer as a viable option for less intense projects, particularly ones that require touching up those hard-to-reach areas. A palm or hand nailer, as they're also known, is typically used for framing, decking, fencing, pole barns, metal connector straps and other similar applications. While palm nail guns don't offer the benefit of a collated drive to hold a large capacity of fasteners, palm nailers are small, and capable of reaching hard to access areas where a large tool would be unable to fit. Another benefit to palm nailers; you can find most priced below $100.
