Power Tools To Fix Up The Backyard For Summer

Home Improvement
What could be better than hanging out a brand new deck grilling and entertaining friends and family this summer? Not much. Adding a deck to the backyard is a great way to spruce up the house and provide entertaining space. The best part is that building a deck is a do-it-yourself project as long as you have the proper power tools.

Here are some of the basic pieces you can easily rent at your local equipment rental store to build a beautiful deck your family and friends can enjoy this summer and year round:

1. Miter Saw - This is the most important power tool to have in your deck-building arsenal. Building a deck is much more than throwing down some planks, it is a precise business. The miter saw makes sure that your cuts and angles are precise for a perfect fit. It also gives you the freedom to build your deck in a patterned design instead of just vertical or horizontal planks. Cutting angles in the planks with a miter saw allows you to do this with ease.

2. Circular Saw - Need to trim the ends of the planks after you've screwed them down? A circular saw is easy to simply run down the length of the deck, making the necessary cuts.

3. Sander - Unless you are using composite materials, you will definitely need a reliable and strong orbital sander to make sure the planks and railings are smooth and splinter-free. For composite materials, you will still want to sand the ends of the planks if you've had to cut them.

4. Reciprocating Saw - This is also called a sawzall. It is a long thin saw that can reach into those difficult to reach places. It is especially important for making those cuts where your circular saw won't reach like under the decking.

5. Router - This power tool is great for putting the finishing touches on your deck. Using a router, you can add some scroll work or other decorative touches to your railings or curve the ends of the planks. It allows you to spice up the design and give it your personal touch.

6. Drill - A sturdy reliable power drill is essential to driving the hundreds of screws that secure the planks to the frame. Your drill will need a lot of torque to get the long decking screws through the planks and into the frame.

7. Auger - Yes, you can use a manual hole digger for the anchors. But, if your ground is too hard or you just want to make it easier, an auger can make faster work of the holes.

You can easily rent tools to get your project done. When working outside with these power tools, always use precaution. Wear your safety glasses and keep track of where the power cords are so you don't cut them. Make sure they aren't anywhere near standing water too.

Use the right power tools and you can have a brand new deck in not time. Oh, it also makes a great opportunity for some guy-bonding time so solicit help from your buddies to make the work go by faster and make it more fun!
