Top Tools for Your Trade: Roofers
So you want to deck out your toolkit? Don’t worry, roofies, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’re just beginning your career as a roofer or you’re a seasoned pro looking for an upgrade, we’ve listed our top picks for the essential power tools you need in your kit.
The number one tool for your kit is a powerful and reliable cordless drill. Consider investing in a drill with a brushless motor as this will best serve you in the long-term. We recommend our DX12K 2in1 Combo Kit, complete with the DX12 Hammer Drill and DX71 Speed Impact Driver. The DX12 Hammer Drill will give you that force needed to create holes in the roof deck for anchors or screws. And with a maximum torque of 215N.m, the DX71 Speed Impact Driver will deliver exceptional power for driving screws and bolts on the go. Get yours here.
Another great addition to the toolkit is the angle grinder. Its versatility means you can do anything from cutting metal flashing to cutting tiles and slates to fit around edges. We recommend our DX31 Angle Grinder. It’s fitted with a 3-position handle for ease of use, and an anti-restart paddle switch for maximum safety. Get yours here.
Consider adding a reciprocating saw to your collection. Perfect for rough cuts and demolition, the recip saw will have you cutting through roof decking and nails, or for trimming shingles with ease. We recommend our DX52 Reciprocating Saw. With its tool-free blade change system and pendulum function you’ll get powerful but precise cuts every time. Get yours here.
