Construction Projects in 2021

If we thought 2020 was the year of the home improvement project, then we might be surprised at what 2021 has in store. Our extended time at home has crept into another calendar year, and the DIY experts amongst us have been cooking up some more ambitious plans. Last year may have seen us painting the outside fence and putting some flat-pack furniture together, but this year we can put in place the plans we have spent the long lockdown months putting together, and that means small, domestic construction projects which can transform our lives.construction fixings and fasteners

The last 12 months have taught us that our home is our castle and spending more time at home has inevitably seen us look at ways to make practical improvements. Of course there are limits to what some of us are capable of, but DIY experts can handle a series of home improvements which can have a dramatic effect on the home. These can be a loft conversion to create an extra bedroom for your growing family, or installing a pocket door to give you enough space to turn the spare bedroom into a new home office. After all, we’re all learning to work from home more often.

Using fixings and fasteners for our home improvement projects

Outside the home people are making use of spare land to construct a new garage, or to install decking, or to tear down a garage and replace it with a summer house. We have become adept at making the best use of the space we have available and that sometimes means thinking outside the box. The more ambitious amongst us may even turn our hand to building an extension, if we have the skills and know-how and some friends in all the right trades.

The common thread that ties all these home improvement and mini-construction projects together is the tools and materials we will use. The classic fixings and fasteners are a key feature of small, domestic construction projects and knowing what to use and when is one of the most important aspects of getting the job done right.

Two of the most popular fasteners are wood screws and hexagon screws. These are versatile items used in most domestic projects such as these. Wood screws are used extensively in an extension or a loft conversion, and will be used for floorboards, door frames and roof timbers. A summer house can be completely constructed from wood, so wood screws will become your best friend, along with the humble nail.

How Kayfast can help select your fixings and fasteners

Hexagon screws are equally versatile and are often used in these types of project, where greater torque strength is required, and particularly in external projects where stainless steel and galvanised hexagon screws will preserve against the bad weather.

Where a garage is made from heavy duty concrete slabs or steel sheeting, you often make use of security screws for that extra strength and reliability, whilst roofing and cladding products are also useful for a garage or summer house.

Internally, you may make use of drywall products when putting an extension together, and socket screws will be very useful with something like a loft conversion, where you may have limited space in a tight corner, and only have room to use an Allen key to secure your fixings.
