Winter DIY

This blog post investigates the different Home Improvement DIY Techniques you can use to have a warmer winter in your house, office or other building, utilising the very best RUKO or TERRAX drilling and cutting tools from Quality Tools UK.





Windows and Doors

Maintaining a warm household or office environment depends largely on the quality of the windows or even in some cases doors. By installing high-quality windows and doors you can help reduce loss of heat significantly. Quality Tools UK offers a range of tools which can be a beneficial accessory when installing new windows or doors. Including our Deburring Tools & Rotary Burrs for grinding and removal of excess material such as wood, plastic or even metal. Our Drilling Tools can be used to assemble handles or hinges. And our Hole Saws or Core Drill Annular Cutters can be used to create large diameter holes where necessary.

Draught Exclusion

Hot air within your heated building could escape with ease if gaps are located near doors, windows and holes in walls where cold air seeps in. Draught Excluders provide the best solution for this. However, cushioned fabric draught excluders can get in the way and provide a trip hazard within your home or office. Installing seals, weather strips, door brushes and other hardware strips is less of a nuisance. Quality Tools UK offers a range cutting and drilling tools ideal for trimming, shaping or installing these weatherproofing/breeze blocking insulation appliances. For instance, RUKO HSS Jobber Twist Drill Bits could provide a helpful tool when installing door brush seal strips to the bottom of your doors.


Pest Control

Following on from the previous point, adding seals and exclusion devices to your building can also reduce unwanted pests. By installing/fitting seals around windows, doors and cracks/holes within walls can help to stop creepy crawleys from seeking shelter from the cold weather within your home/office. In certain cases, rodents may seek shelter dependant on the size of the gap. Once again, by using tools on offer from Quality Tools UK, you can install pest control barriers and other forms of seals to reduce the likelihood of these unwanted guests.

Quality Tools UK is once again on hand with a variety of tools to help with these chores. For instance, our RUKO De Burring Blade may provide assistance when removing excess material on furniture or when removing difficult flooring.
