4 Essential Tools to Install Ceiling Shelving

Home Improvement,Home Repair,Organizing
While other tools may get the job done, use the best tool to save time and get the job done quicker. Using the wrong tool can cause injury. It may cause fatigue from working harder than you have to, which leads to aggravation or irritation because of the project. Do the wiser thing by using the proper tools. If you do not currently own them or maybe it does not seem practical to buy them, ask buddies or neighbors whether they have the tools that you need.

Ceiling shelves have to be attached safely to ceiling beams. Drive those lengthy 3" lag screws into the joists with the use of an impact driver. You should always pre-drill the holes so that you do not chance breaking the lumber which could weaken the beam. A cordless drill will drive lag bolts, probably with a little help from candle wax around the threads, but it is enormously better to work with an impact driver. You should have an adapter for the impact driver so that they can connect sockets from your socket kit.

A stud finder with deep scan mode is essential for finding studs in your ceiling. The reason being that the ceiling may have extra layers of sheet rock, texture, or insulation that disrupts the basic stud scan. I do not suggest you finagle with hole punches, coat hangers, and long slender nails in an overly exerted attempt to get the center of the joists. Many mid grade stud finders include a deep scan function. Read the instructions it is packaged with for the way to enter deep scan function. You may find a model with digital display that makes very clear the location of the edges of the joists are, and they often have a light and/or sound to show the center of stud.

A wide tape-measure could be stretched to greater distances without folding. Find a tape measure broader than 1” wide. Even though it may be the most convenient tape measure, the cute one in color-matched family tool set isn’t going to be adequate for this task. Excellent tape measures also put special coloring on 16” increments for wall studs, which can be applicable if your ceiling joists are also space 16" on center. The foot increments should be highlighted on just about any tape measure.

Don't be tempted to use a claw hammer where the instructions endorse a rubber mallet. You may end up denting, bending, or otherwise damaging the metal parts. First you’ll tell yourself you will be gentle. Then you’ll be angry at yourself for not bothering to pick up the mallet. You will also protect your hearing from the noise of metal banging on metal. If must use a hammer, place a wooden block on top of where you are hammering. This solution might require growing a third arm (or getting a helper) so you can hold the part, placed the wooden block, and swing the hammer all at once.

With the right tools, your overhead garage storage shelf installation can be an enjoyable and satisfying project. Buy or borrow what you don’t currently have. Collect an impact driver, wide tape measure, stud finder with deep scan, and rubber mallet. This is not a complete list of the equipment you’ll need to install an hanging shelf, however these items could make the job easier and go quicker.
