A home repair tool kit is something that every home should have whether the occupants are particularly handy or not. There are so many small things that can go wrong in a home that may need some immediate attention or that require waiting for a repair professional. There are very few differences between a basic kit and a home repair kit. There are prefilled basic tool kits that you can add to in order to have a well prepared home repair tool kit.
Your basic home repair tool kit should include some general tools such as a hammer, flat and Phillips screwdriver, wrench, Allen wrenches and pliers. Some other things that should be included are washers, screws, nails, nuts and bolts. You never know what may break and how you will have to temporarily fix it, from a leaking toilet tank to a table leg that falls off.
A breaker box layout that clearly identifies what each breaker controls should also be in your home kit. It may be important to be able to switch off certain breakers if there is a water leak, or an electrical problem. Light bulbs, batteries, and paper towels should also be part of your home repair tool kit. These are all things that you may need in the course of making small repairs around the home.
