Do you like to work around your home on various home improvement projects? Maybe pour a concrete patio, or build a deck on your patio, or lay tile in your master bathroom? After living at the same home for well over 20 years, we have done a variety of improvements to our own home here in Edmond. In doing so, we ran across a helpful free app from Dewalt that makes any home improvement project easier.
In early 2017 we poured a concrete slab for our shop. I was able to calculate how much fill dirt and sand was needed, and then calculate how much concrete to order for the slab. When painting, I can easily plug in information such as wall width and height, door and windows sizes and numbers, length of crown molding, and the app will calculate how much paint I need to order.
Planning to install drywall, remodel a room, or install sheetrock in a ceiling? Use the board and sheetrock calculator to figure out how much sheetrock is needed, how much tape and putty you will need.
If you are really serious about home improvement projects, or are an amateur carpenter, or even a licensed electrician, Dewalt offers a variety of add-on packs you can purchase with specialty templates for this trades.
Dewalt also offers a number of books and references you can choose such as electrical codes.
The base app with most of the calculations we use is free. Download now and start your next home improvement project!
