Answers to Your Hardware Store Questions

We've all seen the advertisements on television for big retail home improvement centers where the staff is happily answering complicated construction questions. Of course the reality of that scene is somewhat questionable. While some hardware store clerks are happy to answer questions, others can be quite cold. So before heading out to the strip mall, here are the answers to a few commonly asked hardware store questions.

  • What are the basic tools I should have in my tool kit?
    Your basic toolbox should contain a hammer, some nails, a selection of screwdrivers, as well as wood and metal screws. Over time, you can add other tools as you need them.

  • When is it time to throw in the towel and call a professional to finish my home improvement project?
    If your kitchen or bathroom remodel is stalled for more than a week or two while you attempt to figure out some complicated installation, it's time to call in a professional.

  • What does the clerk at the hardware store mean when he refers to "millworks"?
    Millwork is just a fancy way of saying pre-made doors and kitchen cabinets that are sold in retail outlets. Anything like bathroom cabinets that isn't pre-made is referred to as "custom."

  • Do I have to use primer before I paint something or is it just an extra step?
    Yes, applying a layer of primer is recommended before painting anything from doors to fences. The layer of primer will help keep the paint from getting absorbed into the wood or drywall.

  • What is sheet rock? Is it the same thing as drywall?
    Sheet rock, also referred to as drywall, is a slab of gypsum rock that's covered in a thin coat paper. This durable material is nailed to the framing of a house to created walls.
