Depending on the size and complexity of the ministry, groups may wish to maintain a set of tools or rely upon volunteers to bring their own. For a list of recommended tools, see the "Suggested Tool List"¨ below. If volunteers are expected to bring their own tools, they should be made aware of this need at the time of their recruitment. Any promise by the ministry to replace personal tools that are broken or stolen during a home repair project should also be made known.

We suggest each team member bring with him/her the following:

  • Hammer
  • Pair of work gloves
  • Pencil
  • Eye protection, dust mask
  • Nail apron

Additional useful tools to have access to:

  • Tape measure
  • Screwdrivers (Phillips and straight, manual and/or electric)
  • Chisels
  • Utility knife
  • Adjustable pliers, needle-nose pliers
  • Wire cutter
  • Flashlight
  • Painting tools - 4" brush, roller & paint pan, masking tape, scraper, drop cloths, spackle, sandpaper
  • Speed square and team framing square
  • Chalk line
  • A selection of nails and screws
  • Putty knives
  • Adjustable wrenches
  • Circular saw
  • Variable speed/reversible drill, drill bits, screwdriver bits
  • WD-40 or equivalent
  • Sawhorse set and plywood tabletop
  • Ladders (both A-frame and extension)
  • Hand saw, wrecking bar, pry bar, level
  • Extension cords and two prong adopter
  • Clean-up supplies (trash bage, paper towels, hand cleanser, etc.)
  • Ice chest full of water, sport drinks, soda

Plus any other tools specific to the project undertaken.
