Spring Home Decorating in Greater VictoriaIt is Peter’s Experience that "buying cheap" does not pay off with tools and or safety equipment, look for the best quality you can afford, most good tools will last a lifetime. The next best Tool in your Tool box are good resources for assistance (books or the web) and a big dose of common sense……. Know what you can, and more importantly know what "you can not fix” and be prepared to call for help……..

By the Way, if you come accross a project that you know how to do but are lacking the tools or equipment, please give Peter and Linda a call, we may have just the right tool or resource for you.
