About

Hi there and thanks for visiting GarageToolAdvisor.com. I’m Chris and with the help of a couple friends (both independent general contractors), we’ve developed this site to help do-it-yourselfers, weekend warriors, mechanics, new home owners, hobbyists, and contractors choose the right tools to stock their garage. Ever since I purchased my first home over 20 years ago, I’ve been doing projects around the house (and other peoples’ houses) all the time. Through that time, I learned that there are certain tools that every garage should have as well as those that are simply a waste of money.

Our goal is to provide a quick at-a-glance look at the top 2 or 3 models of each tool type, show why we recommend each one, and filter out all other products that you shouldn’t waste your time on. We understand that our target audience is extremely busy and doesn’t have time to read reviews of dozens of products. We do the research for you and are not afraid to recommend a $10 model if it does the same job as a $50 model.

We are constantly reviewing new tools which are actually useful, not those that you “might” use once every 5 years. If there is anything you would like to see reviewed in the future, please let us know via our Contact form.
