Paver Saw Helps with Veteran Memorial

In Liberty, it’s finally happening.  Since 2012, the LVMG (Liberty Veterans Memorial and Gardens, Inc) have been raising funds to build a memorial to all veterans from any branch of service.  Its a beautiful and unique design.  But it required some interesting shaped pavers which is where our paver saw came in.

Our Customer Chooses DIY – and Wow!

We have a lot of great customers who rent from us on a regular basis. Some are contractors, some are landscape companies, but we’re always happy to help the DIY-ers who come in with a project!

Recently, we had a customer come in to rent a floor sander. He wanted to have a floor refinished, and got quotes to have the work done. When he heard what it would cost, he decided to use his DIY skills. We helped him rent a floor sander, he did the work himself, and wow!

What do you think? Looks great!

Easy Patio Upgrades to Enjoy this Summer

Rent the tools needed to spruce up your outdoor living spaceDo you have plans to take your patio to the next level this season, but don’t know where to start? Making some simple DIY improvements to your outdoor living space is like adding a whole new room to your home, one you can enjoy almost year-round.

Bring the Indoors Out with Cozy Furniture

Many of the elements that make your other living areas comfortable can be used outdoors in your patio space. There is a wider variety than ever of weatherproof furniture, complete with plush cushions, that can stand up to anything Mother Nature dishes out. The same goes for rugs and other homey accents. These pieces give the illusion of blending your indoor and outdoor spaces into one. Just decide how your space will be used – for dining or lounging – and plan out your space accordingly. If space is tight, there are clever fold-up table and chair options that can be stowed away when not in use.

Let there be Light
The market has exploded in recent years with a vast array of solar-powered lighting options that allow you to bring instant drama to your backyard living space without having to worry about electrical outlets or unsightly wiring. Use solar path lighting to illuminate walkways or borders, and hang decorative solar-powered lanterns as beautiful accents near seating areas. Stringed lights now come in a variety of solar styles and bulb sizes, and add drama to shrubs and trees with their soft, twinkling glow.

Spruce up the Landscape
Add some natural elements with simple, but eye-catching landscaping. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, some simple flowerbeds or artfully placed potted plants can add colorful texture to your outdoor space. If you’re feeling a little more ambitious, consider adding a water feature, such as a fountain or waterfall. All the tools and know-how you’ll need can be found at your local equipment rental store.

Turn up the Heat

Adding an element of warmth will allow you to enjoy your patio during all four seasons. You can build a simple fire pit, or add a chimenea for enticing ambiance regardless of the weather. Finish off your space with a grill and now you truly have an additional multi-use space that will get you out of the house and into the great outdoors when it’s time to kick back and relax.

Plumbing Jobs you can Tackle Yourself

Rent the tools you need for jobs you can do yourselfIt’s no secret hiring a plumber can be a costly endeavor. But so can taking on a plumbing project that’s outside your skill level. You could be doing more harm than good, and you may have to hire a professional after all to fix your mistakes. Here we’ll break down which home plumbing jobs are straightforward enough to do yourself, and which ones are best left to the pros.

Before you begin any project, make sure you know how to turn off the water, not only to the fixture you need to work on, but also your home’s main water supply. Also, know which tools you’ll need to complete the job. You can rent a wide range of plumbing tools from your local equipment rental company, such as plumbing snakes, crimping tools and more.

Clogged Drains

Knowing how to prevent drains from clogging is your first line of defense. But if you do have a slow or clogged drain, it’s normally simple to remedy. Start with a plunger, and if that doesn’t clear the obstruction, snaking a drain with a cable auger you’ve rented for the day will usually do the trick. Sometimes the problem is with the plumbing vent, in which case you may need to enlist the help of professional plumber.

Leaky Faucets

A dripping faucet is normally a pretty simple fix; it’s mostly a matter of knowing how to take the faucet apart and then replacing the washer. Online how-to videos can be helpful for this, or ask someone at your local hardware store for advice on exactly which replacement parts you will need.

Replace Supply Lines

If you have an older home, the water supply lines to your sinks, toilet and washing machine may be made of rubber or plastic which, after time, are prone to leakage. It’s a good idea to replace these with braided steel supply lines. Once you’ve turned off the water supply, simply unscrew the nuts to the old lines and replace them with the new ones.

For the Pros Only

If you’re having a plumbing emergency and water is flowing quickly into your home, by all means call a plumber right away. If there is an issue with your hot water heater, this is another problem best left to a certified plumber. If you are doing major renovations in your kitchen or bathroom, this is also a good time to call in a plumber to make sure the new systems are installed correctly the first time. Lastly, if the source of your problem is with a pipe that’s connected to a city main line, it’s important to hire a plumber to fix the issue quickly and correctly.
