Tools and Accessories to Improve Your Construction Business

When you own a construction business, it is crucial to have reliable tools and accessories that will help your team get work done on time. Since the industry is always evolving and more efficient tools become available, it is vital for a business owner to stay on top of any new tools or accessories for the job. We put together this list of tools and accessories to help you improve your construction business and keep up with industry standards.

Wear Resistant Tool Bag

Your team needs a durable tool bag that is sturdy enough to handle the job and carry their gear without falling apart. This 12 inch tool bag by Amazon Basics has 16 pockets, so you can keep things organized. It is designed to be wear-resistant, so it can handle being on the jobsite.

Tool Belt Set

In addition to a tool bag, the team needs tool belts for the gear that they use the most often . This OKF Heavy Duty 6-Piece Set Tool Belt with Suspenders is reinforced and durable. The tool pouch is made of 1680D polyester fiber, so it can handle a range of working conditions. The pouch has pockets, hanging rings, hammer holders, and even a tape measure buckle, so everything will stay secure and organized.

Fire Extinguisher

There are many flammable chemicals used on a construction site. It is important to keep fire extinguishers on hand to take care of any fires before they can grow out of control. The Buckeye 5 HI SA40 ABC 10914 Fire Extinguisher comes in a four-pack, so you can place them throughout the job site. It is suitable for Class A, Class B, and Class C fires.


Sometimes, you need extra power on the job site, so having a portable generator on hand is always a good idea. The WEN DF475T Dual Fuel 120V/240V Portable Generator is designed for use on a construction site. You can easily switch between using propane and gasoline with the turn of a dial. The tank holds four gallons, and it can run for up to 11 hours.

Tape Measure

Every construction site needs to have durable tape measures on hand. A fiberglass tape measure is an excellent choice, like this 66 foot long tape measure by KSEIBI. It is designed for construction projects with longevity in mind.


Hammers are a staple tool for your construction business. This heavy-duty claw hammer by Mantium has a reinforced design and a stainless steel head designed for construction sites.


Screwdrivers are another essential tool in the construction business. This 11 piece screwdriver set offers Phillips and slotted tip screwdrivers in various sizes to cover what you may need for each job.

Spirit Level

Making sure your work is level and professional-looking is another important part of the construction industry, and this spirit level by Torpedo is a great tool to help you ensure that happens. The level is in a non-conductive, non-corrosive frame that does not scratch wood or damage painted surfaces — and it can even be used as a plumber’s level.
