Many factors, including design and manufacturing, are critical in creating the perfect walk-in closet, pantry, mud room or home office system. But the rubber meets the road at installation.The perfectly designed and crafted home organizational system only works if the installation process is just as seamless, ensuring a successful job and, more importantly, a satisfied client.

Whether an installer is doing a small amount of assembly, trimwork or drilling additional holes for shelving and mounting, the power tools in his toolbag are essential to interpreting the designer’s blueprint and fulfilling the client’s vision of a dream room.

Typically installers point to a few basic tools they never leave the shop without, including portable drills, routers, portable tables saws, circular and jig saws, air nailers, power planers, sanders, a Rotozip tool and portable bandsaws. A toolbox filled with these tools helps the installer get in and out of the jobsite quickly.

A few portable power tool examples are pictured at left: Bosch Impact Drill/Driver; DeWalt 8V Gyroscopic Screwdriver; Festool TI 15 Hybrid Impact Drill; Milwaukee Tool M12 Cordless Lithium-Ion System; Porter-Cable 20v Max Lithium Drill/Driver; Rockwell 16v Drill/Driver and Impact Driver; Senco Fusion F15 Angled Finish Nailer; and Stanley Black & Decker Gyro Rechargeable Screwdriver.
