Stanley Tools

Stanley, Bostitch & DeWalt

Tough! That’s the word we’d use to describe the tools that the Paul Lafrance Design build crews need. When you’re on the go building big projects and making thousands of cuts, being let down by your tools can really ruin your day. Paul and his build teams need tools that work as hard as they do. So who do they go to? Easy: The best in the industry.

For hand tools, Stanley has everything a carpenter needs, from tape measures to chisels, and everything in between. Even rolling storage bins that make transporting our tools on and off the job site quick and easy. What a lifesaver! When we’re working outside, we need tools that we know we can trust not to fail us, even in the worst weather conditions. The durability of Stanley tools is our favourite thing about them.

BostitchBostitch nailers are some of the tools that we depend upon most. These tools aren’t just reliable, innovative, and time-saving. They can also take a beating and they just keep on going, through joist-hanging, finishing, and pranking Kate by nailing her belt to a post (we told you we like to have fun). Of course, we like to get down to business too, and Bostitch compressors & fasteners help us hit the ground running.

DeWalt - Guaranteed ToughRounding off the trifecta are DeWalt power tools. Precise, powerful, state-of-the-art, and of course, dependable. They are everything a carpenter needs to get the job done! Our favourites are the 1/4″ impact driver, and their groundbreaking battery-powered nailer that saves us a huge amount of time. Technology has come a long way in making these tools lightweight, versatile and easy to use.

When building projects for “Disaster Decks” and “Decked Out“, these are the tools that Paul reaches for first. See you next week as we take a closer look at another of our favourites on “We Love It!” Wednesday!
